    The State of Public Finances 2015 - Strategies for Budgetary Consolidation and Reform in OECD Countries

    For most countries in the OECD, 2015 is the seventh or eighth year of dealing with the budgetary consequences of the economic and financial crisis. These years have been marked by challenges of fiscal retrenchment of a scale and nature unprecedented in modern times.
