Role of local borrowing in Croatia
Puni tekst: pdf (15 MB),
Str. 95 - 116
Local government borrowing is one of the most important instruments of financing local public investments. Although theoretical findings and practical experiences provide a proof of its efficiency, there are reasons to be cautious. It is about the possibility of local public government fiscal activity to jeopardise macroeconomic stability, especially by excessive deficit financing. Therefore, there is a need for regulative constraint. The paper deals with international experience and tries to draw some applicable conclusions for Croatian regulation of local borrowing. Local borrowing in Croatia has been seriously limited and its potentials are underutilised. Constraints were imposed primarily because of the fiscal consolidation goals. However, there is still room for the local borrowing and for exploiting its advantages. The Paper offers some proposals.
