Tax increases in the banking sector have been the subject of intense debate since the start of the international financial crisis in 2007. This Observatory evaluates the effects of taxes on banking in Spain within three different alternatives: an additional tax on profits, on deposits and on the volume of loans.
This watch is evaluating the structural factors that shed light on the cyclical behaviour of the Spanish economy in 2017, estimating how they contributed to the annual growth rate of macroeconomic variables such as GDP or salaries.
We present a new model to understand the effects of financial, fiscal, international trade, labour market and other shocks in the great recession and recovery of the Spanish economy. The model also allows us to simulate the effects of permanent and transitory changes in exogenous variables, in order to have an ex-ante evaluation of macroeconomic policies.
