The Finance Ministry’s first Fiscal Policy Seminar took place in Berlin on 13-14 December 2018. The two-day event brought together experts from academia, central banks and government ministries – and hailing from a total of 14 countries – to discuss the role that well-functioning and stable financial markets play in fostering sound fiscal policies. This year’s Best Paper Award was presented to a group of four co-authors whose study showed that financial markets exert disciplinary effects on the actions that governments take.
