Linder, Johannes. (2001) "Linking institutions with outcomes: An institutional assessment of the EU budgetary procedure". In: UNSPECIFIED, Madison, Wisconsin. (Unpublished)
In this paper, I wish to take up Mr. Schröder's proposal and to place it within a thorough analysis of EU budgetary politics. I share the two key assumptions of the proposal: (i) the current EU budget faces sectoral problems of fiscal discipline, which make a policy change desirable; (ii) institutions influence policy outcomes and thus reforms of the budgetary decisions-making procedure will result in charges in the EU budget. Taking these assumptions as claims, I will try to point out which institutional features are responsible for existing sectoral problems of fiscal discipline.
