    Abstract

    The purpose of this thesis is to describe the influence of the Common European Fiscal Framework (Maastricht Treaty) on the Economic Growth of Greece. Under specific hypotheses, we use the standard neoclassical growth theory model of Ramsey – Cass – Koopmans. For a period of 2000 till 2006, the estimated results show that Greece faces a significant divestment on its physical capital.
