要:This paper studies the effects of government spending news shocks on interest rates and investigated what is the role of agents' expectation in the propagation of government spending to the term structure using quarterly data from 1981Q3 to 2016Q1 in the United States. We start by setting a VAR system including the information from the Survey of Professional Forecaster, which does not suffer from the problem of non-fundamentalness. We then identify government spending surprise shocks by sign restrictions following Enders et al. (2001) and news shocks to government spending as the shocks that best explain future movements in government spending over a four-year horizon and are orthogonal to current government spending. We find that positive government spending news shocks lead to increases in both short-term and long-term interest rates. The increase in long-term interest rates is partly due to higher expected spot rates, and partly due to higher risk premia on long term bonds. For the effect on the shape of the yield curve, government spending news shocks raise the level and curvature factors of the yield curve.
