Fiscal policies that stabilize debt may not provide the fiscal backing necessary for monetary policy to successfully target inflation. Appropriate backing is provided by passive fiscal behavior. Understanding the distinction between stabilizing and passive fiscal policies is central to the design of fiscal rules.
