  • Schilirò, Daniele


The paper aims to critically examine the problems of public debt in Italy under the criteria of the Maastricht Treaty and subsequent decisions by Europe in tax matters. On this issue, the paper shows Italy's efforts in the direction of the Maastricht criteria, but also highlights the problems to be solved to fully comply with the parameters of the Treaty, to stabilize the public debt and put the Italian economy in a renewed growth path for stay in Europe with a leading role. In addition, this paper intends to shed light not only on the convergence criteria of Maastricht, but also and more generally, on the main features of economic governance in Europe's single currency.
