SamenvattingIn this paper the existence of a political budget cycle in The Netherlands from 1971 to 2014 is being researched. OLS regression for time-series is used. The dependent variables are the budget deficit as percentage of GDP and the payment on social securities as percentage of GDP. Controlling for other factors, no evidence was found for an increase of the budget deficit or the social security payments during election time. Furthermore, no evidence for a decrease of both dependent variables after elections was found.
