Do Balanced Budget Laws Matter in Recessions?-牟海珍 (加拿大萨斯卡特温大学)


主  题:Do Balanced Budget Laws Matter in Recessions?

内容简介:Critics argue that balanced budget laws (BBLs) are empty political gestures that are ignored during economic slowdowns. We consider BBLs in the Canadian provinces from 1981 to 2013 and find that provinces with stronger rules had better deficit and debt records overall. Recessions make it more difficult to achieve positive outcomes, but we find no obvious difference between the effects of BBLs during normal economic conditions and “bad times”. We conclude with suggestions for how the design of BBLs could take better account of jurisdiction-specific business cycles.
