Sample text

The tragedy is (especially for the millions in the Eurozone who continue to suffer as a result of the austerity measures) the calculations were patently wrong! 7; and for Eurozone countries sinking deeper into recession owing to austerity, it was likely at the higher end of the estimate (Talley 2013; Blanchard and Leigh 2013). In other words the revised data show that increased public spending would actually lead to an expansion of the economy! There is, in fact, robust evidence that every dollar in public spending can generate more than a dollar in economic growth in the ‘real economy’ of production and consumption, by purchasing goods and services that employ people, by employing people who purchase other goods and services, and by signalling stability to the private sector, which is then motivated to undertake its own increased activity (Stanford 2013b).

The first scenario (low growth and sustainability) would require substantial forms of national and global wealth redistribution; a small redistributive tax on the richest quintile of the world would have a far more dramatic impact on poverty and inequality reductions than conventional ‘trickle-down’ growth. It further assumes a large downward shift in work-time so that more people work less for reasonable incomes to avoid massive unemployment, increased social protection spending, and a reversal of the consumer culture.
