ABSTRACT
The article presents information on the political and economic developments in Estonia. Estonian fiscal policy has enabled an environment conducive to economic growth but has created splits in the ruling coalition. Such a union would prompt instability in the short term, since it would alienate the center-left People's Union. Tight management of Estonia's finances has created a healthy environment for economic growth, but the impact of fiscal policy on political stability continues to be divisive. The government came close to collapse in autumn 2003 over plans to introduce a phased reduction of income tax from 26% to 20%, with the administration's largest party, Res Publica, finding itself skewered between the desires of its coalition partners.
