Resumen

La deuda pública de la economía española ha alcanzado niveles no vistos anteriormente en tiempos de paz. La persistencia de unas condiciones de financiación extraordinariamente favorables no será suficiente para reconducir la deuda hacia niveles que nos hagan menos vulnerables. Será necesario diseñar una estrategia de consolidación enmarcada en un marco de supervisión fiscal europeo más robusto, que tenga en cuenta tanto la heterogeneidad en los niveles de deuda de las economías europeas como los cambios en las condiciones macroeconómicas de los años recientes.
