DE citit acest articol...

... semnat Paul Krugman, de pe blogul sau din The New York Times:

Self-destructive Europe

Iata ce se arata printre altele:

"Basically, faced with a huge blow to private demand from a burst housing bubble and deleveraging, Europe has responded not as 75 years of economics said it should, with temporary stimulus, but with Herbert Hoover — or, better, Chancellor Brüning — policies of retrenchment. And policy makers pronounce themselves shocked both to find that the bottom is dropping out of Europe’s economy and that their perceived authority and wisdom is being rejected by voters.

Meanwhile, Mark Mazower, an actual European historian, says better and with more authority than I could what I’ve been trying to get at: the Chancellor Brüning reference is not a joke:
Those preaching austerity probably do not see themselves as contributing to a crisis of democracy, but they are. The Italian elections should remind eurozone leaders to pay attention to their voters. Economic fixes have failed to staunch a political crisis that has the capacity to harm not only EU integration, but the legitimacy of the continent’s democratic order itself. "
Interesant e fenomenul: 
"First, Simon Wren-Lewis reminds us that while extreme austerity is being imposed on Europe’s periphery, the core has also pursued contractionary fiscal policies."

Deja politicile de austeritate, aplicate pe vreme de recesiune, sunt vazute ca fiind factorul ce contribuie la o criza a democratiei.

Interesant de citit e si acest articol, semnat tot de Paul Krugman:

Disastrous Predictions and Predictable Disasters

Bineinteles, recomand citirea ambelor articole integral si in original.
