The global financial and the subsequent European Sovereign Debt crisis have renewed the interest in fiscal policy as a macroeconomic stabilization device because central banks have lost their conventional measure of stimulating the economy through reductions in the policy interest rate. At the same time, rising debt burdens following the crisis - especially in Europe - have called into question fundamental views about the desirability and the effects of fiscal policy on the macro-economy in general and on debt sustainability in particular. Against this backdrop, the “Workshop on Fiscal Policy in Times of Crisis” brings together international leading researchers and young researchers from Leibniz Association to discuss their work. The workshop is financed by the Leibniz Research Alliance “Crises in a Globalised World”.
