Als ik Alternet lees, begin ik me toch serieus af te vragen of al dat bezuinigen nou wel zo goed is. Zeker niet voor de economie, die krimpt er alleen maar door.
Austerity does not work– it produces massive unemployment and deficits. The tight money policies tried in Europe, predictably, have produced spiraling unemployment and ballooning deficits with a continued mortgage crisis in Spain . US corporations are sitting on trillions that they are refusing to invest in the US economy , and only government can continue to get money into the economy. If Romney follows through on his pledge of austerity policies , US unemployment will likely increase and we will replicate many of the Rajoy government’s mistakes in Spain.
