Abstract

The cyclically adjusted budget balance CAB plays a key role in the EU fi scal surveillanceframework. It started off in a supporting role in the shadow of the headline defi cit and, beforelong, turned into the linchpin of the rules of the Stability and Growth Pact. The steep ascentwas driven by high expectations which, with the passing of time, were only partly met. The everyday practice of the EU fi scal surveillance rapidly revealed a number of caveats of the CAB which, at times, hampered the effectiveness of fi scal surveillance. This paper provides a comprehensive review of the changing fortunes of the CAB in the EU fi scal surveillance framework. It portrays its main shortcomings and the way they are dealt with in practice.
