Fiscal Reforms for Credibility and Growth

This chapter investigates the actions being taken by the Italian government to strengthen fiscal sustainability while supporting economic growth via fiscal policy. The key is to reduce structural spending and limit tax evasion, raising the primary surplus to levels targeted in Italy’s Stability Programme, and making room for lower tax rates and enhanced spending on infrastructure and human capital.
