The aim of this document is to establish the relationship between fiscal policy and the level of economic activity. On the theoretical ground, this is done using a model that links fiscal policy with economic activity, mixing the contractive and/or expansionary effects of a fiscal expansion, given the initial situation of fiscal accounts. On the empirical ground, this is done for the period 1980-2006, testing the predictions produced by the theoretical model. The main results suggest that during the period 1980-1990, characterized by the fragility of the fiscal accounts, fiscal policy had a weak effect on the level of economic activity, whereas during the period 1990- 2006, considered of improvement of fiscal accounts, the effect of fiscal policy is stronger.
