This study tests the relationship between the current account and fiscal policy for a group of small open developing economies with fixed exchange rate regime, some of which are oil exporters. Specifically, it tests the viewpoint of a Ricardian infinite-horizon representative agent model in which lower public savings are met by equal increases in private savings and as a result the current account does not respond to the changes in government spending, against the Keynesian's conventional viewpoint in which a fall in public savings has an adverse effect on the current account balance.
