Fiscal Policy in the EU and the EMU

Timeframe: Completed
Project Manager: Rickard Eriksson and Ulrika Stavlöt

This project has looked at fiscal policy in the EMU countries after the introduction of the Euro. It has studied both the system of fiscal rules in the EU and how national fiscal policy is best carried out.

One particular topic examined was the question of how the common regulatory framework on the EU level should be formulated and what could be done to achieve adherence to that framework. The problems on the national level include effective stabilization measures while participating in the EMU and the relation between the national framework and the EU framework.
