Trimming the Sails: The Comparative Political Economy of Expansionary Fiscal Consolidations : A Hungarian Perspective

Synopsis

Fiscal consolidation has significant short-term costs which can dampen economic growth. This widely shared consensus in the literature on political economy has made fiscal adjustment highly unpopular among rational politicians. By critically analyzing the international literature and building on evidence from European countries, Benczes conducts a systematic analysis to find out whether it is possible to experience fiscal consolidation and economic growth at the same time, even in the short run.
