This thesis studies the role of fiscal policy over the business cycle based on a combination of empirical macroeconometric techniques and macroeconomic theory. The focus of the analysis to be conducted is on the impact of government expenditure policies, public debt, and sovereign default risk on short-run to medium-term macroeconomic dynamics. The aim of this analysis is to contribute to fill some of the gaps in contemporary research on fiscal policy that have become obvious in the context of the turbulent economic events over the past few years.
