Abstract

The connection between fiscal policy and economic growth is not a strong one, takinginto account that fiscal policy is not a fundamental source of growth. Even so, governmentauthorities could use fiscal policy to affect in an indirect manner the economic growth. We will tryto highlight this indirect connection and its strength on Romania’s case using a specificeconometric methodology which takes into account the restrictions imposed by the government’sbudget constraint and we will identify the specific fiscal policy measures which could enhanceeconomic growth in Romania.
