Abstract:
In this paper, we have highlighted the economic conditions of the UAE economy past GFC where there was fiscal expansion to bring the economy back out of recession. This has brought the economy back on recovery path and reduced its dependence on the oil sector alone as its major contribution to GDP which has reduced to the extent of 25% from above 60%. The policy makers have shifted their focus from fiscal expansion to one of fiscal consolidation which is argued against in this paper.
