An easy guide to Fiscal Sustainability Analysis

Fiscal Sustainability Analysis (FSA) was developed by the World Bank to further enhance understanding of fiscal policy and the constraints faced by policy makers in middle-income countries. It is standardised and simple, but also flexible enough to allow for user-defined country specifics.
