For France and several other countries, the current crisis (2008-…) has highlighted the need of containing the growth in public spending within the fiscal consolidation strategy required to reduce the high public debt ratio accumulated to mitigate the consequences of the crisis.
Advanced economy – including France – would have to improve their cyclically adjusted primary balance by several points of GDP => requiring both revenue increases and expenditure reduction.
§Public health spending in advanced countries has been characterized by short periods of accelerated growth followed by periods of cost containment.  Since 1970, public health care spending has risen from 3 to 7 percent of GDP in the advanced economies, by far the most important driver of total public spending increases. The growth of public health spending picked up after 2000. This is reflected in a more widespread increase in government spending over the 2000–08, after a period of spending containment in the 1990s.
