Hide / Show Abstract

This chapter deals with the tax and spending policies applied to achieve the government’s medium-term objectives. The first two sections assess the power of the tax freeze as an instrument to lower taxes as a share of GDP and as a spending-control mechanism. In the following section, the newly implemented sanctions on local governments are described. The agreed earned income tax cuts from 2004 are subsequently assessed, and then some policy recommendations are summarised.
