NATURE AND EFFECTS OF PUBLIC DEBT

By Roberto Ciccone, Roma Tre University

The lecture will basically focus on the following two groups of issues: a) the nature and implications of public debt; b) the effects which public debt may produce on the economic system. After specifying what the debt of the public sector actually is and questioning some unfounded ‘common sense’ beliefs about that, it will be argued that the effects attributed to debt financing of public expenditure are bound to be different according to the theoretical framework on the basis of which one understands the working of a market economy.
