Fiscal Watchdogs: One Size Fits All?
Robert Chote, Chairman, Office for Budget Responsibility, UK
Some countries have had independent fiscal watchdogs for many years, but the fiscal consequences of the recent financial crisis have prompted the creation of several new ones - with a number of other countries now thinking about following suit. Robert Chote will argue that fiscal watchdogs can play a useful role in helping to improve the management of the public finances, but that it is important to tailor the design to the particular policy needs and institutional environments of each country.
