In the research project, growth effects of different public spending categories in Slovenia will be analysed. Furthermore, against the backdrop of the current need for fiscal consolidation in Slovenia, it will be analysed whether expenditure reductions or tax increases are less harmful to long-term economic growth or even in some instances may enhance growth. Applying an optimization algorithm, optimal strategies of consolidating the public budget will be determined.
