Various rationalisations have been offered in the literature to justify the need for fiscal rules in a monetary union. The recent European experience, however, shows that the enforcement of such rules is, at least, incomplete and selective. In this paper we develop a model which allows consideration of the enforceability and effectiveness of alternative rules in achieving fiscal policy discipline in a multinational monetary union.
