The Design of Fiscal Consolidation Plans
Governments worldwide are still struggling with the aftermath of the global fincancial crisis. The biggest problems: Budget deficits and debts. The Global Economic Symposium debates how fiscal consolidation plans should be designed. Raising the wrong taxes or cutting government expenditure could be dangerous for the economy. And what about expensive pension systems? Two speakers of this session present their proposals for this problem, OECD-director Christian Kastrop and Hans-Paul Bürkner, Global Chairman at The Boston Consulting Group.
