Zusammenfassung Nach der Finanz- und Wirtschaftskrise ist die Verschuldung in vielen EU-Staaten deutlich angestiegen. Eigentlich gibt es in der Europäischen Union ein geeignetes Regelwerk, um überhöhte Budgetdefizite zu verhindern. Die Anwendung der Fiskalregeln hat allein aber nicht zu den angestrebten Ergebnissen geführt. Die Autoren schlagen daher die Einrichtung von politisch unabhängigen Fiskalräten vor, die eine Kontrollfunktion übernehmen könnten.
