Abstract

The present work analyzes the different positions of the different political parties in Spain with respect to the new General Law of Budgetary Discipline. In this sense, the paper extracts the relevant information about this law from the different parliamentary debates. First, we elaborate a previous theoretical matrix containing the potential arguments to be used by politicians in their debates, in order to show their opinions supporting the law or going against it. Among the main conclusions, we observe that the central level of government supports the law using mainly legislative and public choice arguments, in the context of its support for the autonomy of the low levels of government. By the contrary, the rest of the political parties, mainly the Catalans Nationalist Parties, consider that the new law is clearly against the autonomy of the low levels of government.
