The world economy has been in a crisis mould since 2007. What started as a sub-prime crisis in the residential mortgage market in the US, resulted in a global financial crisis, uneven recovery and persisting uncertainties with new challenges to several areas of public policy. The eruption ofthe Sovereign debt crisis in some countries in the euro area has led to a setback to the incipient recovery. The emerging markets which appeared somewhat resilient in the initial stage, have since been subjected to uncertainties. In this backdrop, this book addresses evolving complex interlinkagebetween monetary, financial, and fiscal policies across the globe. The book is organized into three distinct themes. First, the impact of the crisis on fiscal positions and fiscal implications of the measures undertaken to deal with the crisis on the global economy are narrated. Second, cross-country experiences with special emphasis on the euro area economies aswell as India are explored. Finally, issues relating to the interaction between monetary, fiscal and financial policies are analysed, with emphasis on public debt management, sovereign debt restructuring, taxation and regulation of the financial sector and sub-national finance. The concludingchapter presents the emerging challenges.
