Example 1
 DEBT = 0.5
 INT = 0.04
 GRO = 0.02
 PSB* = 0.5(0.04-0.02) = +0.01
November 30, 2015 Ed Dolan’s Econ Blog
Example 1: The Math
 If there is a constant primary
structural surplus of 1% of GDP,
the debt ratio will remain
constant at 50% of GDP
If PSB <1% (a smaller surplus
or a deficit) the debt will grow
If PSB>1% the debt will shrink
 Total interest payments (INT
times DEBT) will be 2% of GDP,
so stability of the debt implies an
overall structural balance,
including interest of -1% (a
structural deficit)
