In economics, austerity refers to policies used by governments to reduce budget deficits usually linked to adverse economic conditions. These policies include spending cuts and tax increases.

Some economists and policy-makers claim that more austerity is necessary in Europe, while others point at austerity measures as aggravating factors for the crisis.
