Add comment on:For an Immediate End of Austerity Policy in Europe
Alternative Economic Policy and Jens Berger
The growth model forced in the past with redistribution from bottom to top and increasing export surpluses has failed. The social and ecological demands for a sustainable economic policy grow. For years, the demands of the AQlternative Economic Policy study group emphasized combating mass unemployment and poverty, taming the financial markets and an adequately financed public sector to do justice to the social-ecological redesign of society. Jens Berger explains how the chief economist of the IMF admitted its error about the fiscal multiplier and austerity policy.
