Europe should grow out of debt

欧州労連(ETUC)が、経済財政相理事会の財政赤字脱却路線を批判しています。

>ETUC says Europe should grow out of debt

http://www.etuc.org/a/5821

>The Economic and Financial Affairs (ECOFIN) Council meeting today is discussing the ‘exit’ strategy from rising public deficits and public debts. While sharing the concern for the sustainability of public finances, the European Trade Union Confederation (ETUC) urges finance ministers and the Commission to grasp the fact that the model of financial capitalism has failed and that private spending is incapable of driving growth and demand for several years to come.

民間支出だけでは成長を支えられない、と。

>Europe therefore needs fiscal policy to support growth in the real economy while also ensuring that sustainability over the medium term is secured.

To maintain economic stimulus and fiscal sustainability at the same time, policymakers should:

cut interest rates to near zero and switch to a quantitative easing of monetary policy, so that government investments can be financed at a low cost of interest;

enlarge public investment spending since this has a bigger and certain impact on the economy than simply cutting taxes;

create a European Debt Agency to suuport individual member states that are confronted with high interest rate spreads, brought about by misguided ratings agencies and unfounded financial market panic behaviour;

address the problems of harmful tax competition, in particular those of tax havens and taxation on capital income such that, when recovery kicks in, governments have tax revenue at their disposal to pay off the public debt.

最後にモンクス事務局長の、

>Says John Monks, ETUC General Secretary: ‘There are those who think that policy needs to choose between saving the real economy and saving public finances. This approach is doomed to fail. Instead, we need a fiscal policy strategy to allow the economy to grow out of debt’.

実体経済と財政の両方を救いたいという考え方は失敗するに決まってる。経済が赤字の中から成長するような財政政策が必要なのだ、という台詞が出てきます。
