Globalization is an ongoing phenomenon and once we are aware of its proportions, the social, political and economic actors need to manage coordinated steps. As a consequence global world has to pay more attention to fiscal actions. Our paper aims to take stock of the fiscal problems caused by phenomena such as globalization, the internationalization of economic activities and economic integration in the European Union and increased risk of unsustainable growth of debt of European countries. Our research begins with an analysis of the concept of globalization. Another issue considered is if the European Union where the euro pushed up public debt of the member countries. Finally we take into consideration the risks and opportunities of common fiscal policy response to phenomena such as economic crises and as Romania, where taxation is trying to place our country in a European directive.
