We analyze alternative strategies of monetary and fiscal policies in a monetary union model with a small macroeconomic model by numerical simulations in the framework of a dynamic game. Several coalitions between governments of the member countries and the common central bank are investigated. We show that only a coalition between all governments and the central bank is efficient, while a fiscal union or other partial coalitions can be counterproductive.
