Economic developments in South European countries raise questions about the sustainability of fiscal policy. We aim to study the attitudes of young people in Bulgaria towards prudent economic policy and we use the word-associations as a tool for this goal. To our knowledge, this is a pioneer attempt in this field, the present paper shows some results from our pilot study among Bulgarian students in economy.
