The article focuses on selected theoretical aspects of anti-crisis stabilization policy and policy exit strategies. The author looks at the approach to macroeconomic stabilization policy prior to the latest financial and economic crisis and discusses specific aspects of the anti-crisis policy. These include the problem of the liquidity trap in monetary policy, the effectiveness of discretionary fiscal packages, differences in the ways of maintaining international competitiveness by countries pursuing an independent monetary policy and those that are member states of the European monetary union. The author also takes a look at new European Commission initiatives for monitoring macroeconomic stability. He concludes that the latest global crisis has led to significant adjustments in methods for pursuing a stabilization policy, although the basic theoretical assumptions have remained unchanged.
