EU Fiscal Rules and International Expenditure Rules

The purpose of the paper is to review the new EU framework for fiscal governance and its importance for expenditure management. This paper considers the current EU fiscal framework and, in particular, the requirements of the Preventive Arm of the Stability and Growth Pact (SGP). The paper contains an analysis of the impacts that long-established expenditure rules may have on public investment, as well as a theoretical application of the Expenditure Benchmark (EB) and a range of expenditure rules to the actual expenditure position in Ireland from 2003 onwards.
