Announcement effect

Updated: Aug 20, 2021

The effect of an announcement of a change in policy, even before it is actually put into effect. For example, a promise by the government to raise indirect taxes next year may lead to an immediate increase spending. Policy announcements can produce such effects only if the policy-maker has credibility.
