Some unpleasant fiscal-adjustment arithmetic
Francesco Grigoli () and
European Economic Letters, 2014, vol. 3, issue 1, 18-21
We document the immediate and permanent impoverishment effect derived from the pure accounting of cutting government expenditure. We calculate the size of this effect for European countries during the fiscal consolidation occurred in 2008-11 and for the next 20 years. The results suggest that the corrected fiscal adjustment may be larger than the programmed one.
