The Economic Crisis and Fiscal Trends in EU Member States

Paul ZAI


This article tries to present the most important measures that were taken by Member States in the period of the economic crisis. Since 2008, starting with the beginning of the economic crisis, the trend of increasing taxes in the European Union’s Member States is evident and has continuously grown in 2010 and 2011. Most of the EU Members States focused more on indirect taxes, but the beginning of the economic crisis, prompted each state to have its own policy regarding taxation. Fiscal changes during the global economic crisis are needed in each Member State.
