A crisis of crisis management? Debates over fiscal adjustments in the European Monetary Union
In response to increasing market pressure, EMU countries embarked on a robust consolidation process in 2010 in order to reduce their fiscal deficits and sovereign debt levels. Although – relying on external help in a number of cases – they have been implementing aggressive adjustment programmes, their public debt-to-GDP ratio is unlikely to change or change very much this or next year. Consequently, a debate has evolved over the effectiveness of fiscal tightening.
