Abstract. This paper studies the relationship between the structure of public spending and macroeconomic outcomes in a model of optimal fiscal policy under political frictions. I distinguish between mandatory and discretionary public spending and analyze the impact of these two components of government spending  on politically-driven macroeconomic volatility. The presence of the legislative requirements behind the changes in mandatory public spending can explain the simultaneous rise in political polarization and decline in the U.S output volatility after the 1980s.

This seminar is enabled by the financial support from Sweden.
