Fiscal convergence has always represented one of the objectives of decision factors from EU member states. An important step in this direction was recently made, through signing of the Fiscal Stability pact by 25 member states. Thus, clear limitations were established for the budget deficit, which signing states engaged to respect. This study shows the mreasure in which budget deficit and public debt influence the fiscal pressure, at the overall level of the EU. During a period in which more states of the EU try to keep the budget deficit under the most strict possible control, we do consider that this study ist o be welcomed.
