EU Anorexia

Michael Stephens | March 1, 2012

C. J. Polychroniou surveys the distressing results, in terms of unemployment (and particularly youth unemployment), of the “neo-Hooverism” and obsession with price stability that permeate European Union policymaking and explains that a fundamental change in approach is needed:

Europe is in dire need of an economic and political revolution. It needs an immediate return to Keynesian measures and a new institutional architecture for the eurozone. It needs to move toward a United States of Europe. If such steps are not taken, Europe’s economies and societies could very well end up in a situation similar to that of the United States in the 1930s.
