[Autom. eng. transl.] The long period of economic and financial crisis, which began in 2008, has forced many governments to tackle, both nationally and locally, the definition of a progressive path to consolidate public accounts. The increase in taxation and the reduction of public spending through linear cuts appeared to be the two levers on which governments are able to act more quickly to achieve their recovery objectives. Implemented by many executives, these measures soon showed their short-term duration and rarely made it possible to recover conditions of stability. The chapter, in introducing the comparison of the spending review processes put in place in some countries, proposes a detailed survey of the measures implemented by the European countries that have joined the stability, coordination and governance pact of the economic and monetary union.
