A fiscal union for the euro: lessons from federal states (2011:10epa)


The European Sovereign Debt Crisis has dominated the EU Member States’ agenda since May 2010. One of the main issues that EU policy makers need to address is the structure of a future fiscal framework. In this publication, Professor Lars Jonung analyses the issue by turning to the fiscal history of four federal states: Argentina, Brazil, Canada and the United States.

The publication is part of the research project Long Term Effects of the Economic Crisis.
