FISCAL REFORMS AND NATIONAL COMPETITIVENESS (THE CASE STUDY OF SLOVAKIA)
The paper attention is given to fiscal reforms in Slovakia. Reform measurements and their impact on the state budget have been investigated in selected areas of the economy. Reforms are always lively discussed issue. On the one hand they are reasoned by expert arguments, but also by political ideas and emotions. On the other hand we must see that the reforms affect all citizens, mainly children, students, workers, unemployed and pensioners. The paper contains a brief overview of the most important reforms in the years 2002-2006 as well as preliminary impacts on the economy, inhabitants and public finances. The aim of this paper is to describe the fiscal reforms in Slovakia, to bring close principles that were behind the changes and to evaluate their influence on the country's competitiveness. The aim is to show how economic policy and reforms have changed the socio-economic model in Slovakia and what results it has brought.
