The role and the performance of public sector in the European Union
The role of the state is finally the decision of the citizens. The government, being a result of elections, can provide more or less protection and increase or decrease expenditures. Anyway for achieving goals and for being performant the state definitly has to promote a good governance. Good governance means the way unions, public institutions, civil society and tax payers work together. An other important factor is the transparency and accountability of the elected government. As regards public services and goods, it is definitly important to grow efficiency of the government. Therefore themes like tax competition, public expenditures and harmonization of the tax system have to be analysed. There are main differences between eastern and western countries of the European Union witch generate social and economical consequences. It is also important to think of measuring performances of the public sector and of finding the most appropriate way in which government size and efficiency can lead to economical growth.
