Marko Primorac and Ivan Župančić evaluate fiscal risks from government guarantees in Croatia and the EU in the paper The structure and economic significance of government guarantees in Croatia and the European Union.

In the paper The estimate of regional balances of payments in Croatia Petar Filipić constructed the regional balances of payments of the Croatian regions and countries to answer the question to what extent does a change in the exchange rate for the kuna affect regional developmental disparities in Croatia.
