Despite strong public opposition and largely damaging short-run effects, the countries have undertaken many of the internationally recommended/mandated reforms and spending cuts. In this Forum, authors from Greece, Ireland, Italy, Spain and Portugal report on the fiscal consolidation achieved in their respective countries — and the sacrifices that have made it possible. Furthermore, the authors detail what remains to be done to resolve the crisis.||Type of material:||Journal Article||Publisher:||Springer||Copyright (published version):||2013, Springer||Keywords:||Economic policy; European integration; Social policy; Labor economics||DOI:||10.1007/s10272-013-0441-3||Language:||en||Status of Item:||Not peer reviewed|
