Дизайн на националните фискални рамки и влиянието им върху икономическия растеж в Централна и Източна Европа

Камелия Боянова Асенова


В годините след прехода към пазарна икономика в Централна и Източна Европа бяха направени сериозни усилия във всички страни от региона за ускоряване на икономическия растеж.
Икономическата политика в Централна и Източна Европа има за цел достигане на средната стойност на БВП на глава от населението в ЕС. Тя изисква да се намерят всички инструменти, с които може да се повлияя върху съвкупното предлагане. Горепосочената цел може да се реализира с парични и фискални инструменти. В настоящото изследване се разглежда влиянието на фискалната рамка и променливи върху икономическия растеж в региона. На последния етап на тестване е добавено паричното предлагане, за да бъде сравнено влиянието на фискалните и паричните инструменти. Идеята е да се намерят подходящите за стимулиране на икономическия растеж в новите страни-членки на Европейския съюз.
