The algebra of economic-policy decision-making is complicated, however, when the transmission mechanism is not known with certainty. Then, as shown by William Brainard (1967), the optimal policy setting should take into account the correlation between the parameters of the transmission mechanism and the objective variable. This creates a case for using several instruments to achieve a single target, as smaller movements in several instruments create less uncertainty than a large movement in a single instrument.

A demand shock is an exogenous modification in the relationship between product demand and the product price. This can be for example a drop in the level of household consumption resulting from a reduction of household wealth. Although both kinds of shocks may result in a reduction or a rise in output, they command different policy responses and it is important to sort out one from the other. 6. A positive demand shock shifts aggregate demand to the right, resulting in moving from the initial equilibrium E to A , characterized by both a higher output and a higher price.

The Pareto criterion ∗ —according to which a policy improves upon the status quo if it increases the utility of at least one individual and does not reduce that of any other—only makes it possible to compare a limited set of situations and policies. 7, borrowed from Atkinson and Stiglitz (1980), explains why. Let us consider two individuals 1 and 2, represent their respective utilities on the X and Y axes, and suppose that the AF locus gives all possible combinations of their respective utilities.
