Hide / Show Abstract

In the immediate aftermath of the financial crisis, there were strong calls for a more active fiscal stabilization policy. Although monetary policy turned very expansionary, via conventional and less conventional instruments, this was not sufficient to prevent sharp reductions in output and employment. The automatic fiscal stabilizers were at work, but this was also seen as insufficient to stabilize the economy. Accordingly, many countries undertook discretionary fiscal policy changes to dampen the consequences of the crisis for output and employment.
