One of the reasons for setting limits to public indebtedness in all layers of government is the concern for the increased tax burdens that will fall on future generations to repay the debt. Coordination of the stabilization policy and ensuring future financial harmonization are of particular concern for regional governments.

The Budgetary Consolidation Scenarios are a useful means of coordinating indebtedness, and also an instrument that is badly managed.
