ИДЕОЛОГИЧЕСКАЯ ПОЗИЦИЯ ПРАВЯЩЕЙ КОАЛИЦИИ КАК ФАКТОР СОВРЕМЕННОЙ МАКРОЭКОНОМИЧЕСКОЙ ПОЛИТИКИ СТРАН ОЭСР

Юрескул Е. А., Филиппов И. Б.

Partisan governments play an impor tant role in the elaborat ion of macroeconomic policies of the Organization for Economic Co-operation and Development (OECD) countries: they manage fiscal policy and coordinate with a Central Bank that conducts monetary policy. Ideology is a crucial parameter of the ruling coalition. This study focuses on the influence of the ideology of the ruling coalition on macroeconomic policies of the OECD countries. Using statistical methods, the analysis examines the relationship between the “rightism” of the ruling coalition and such characteristics of budgetary policy as budget balancing, state expenditures and tax collection. The findings show that the influence of ideology is determined by a set of social and economic factors, so the nature of the influence that ideology wields may work in different directions depending on the conditions.
