Join this campaign. In all likelihood, the markets and States of the Iberian Peninsula, more than those of Ireland or Greece, are going to show the limits and horrors of this crisis. What happens in this part of Europe is in our hands — and there are also shining alternatives.
Creating real change from the current situation, the building of an economic foundation for social cohesion — these are not things we can expect from macroeconomic government policies. That’s not what the peninsular States, and a good part of the European States, are there for any more. Rather, they are debating the rent captures that public debts represent, and the pressure from a few Big Businesses made more powerful (and irresponsible) by the crisis, in a general framework of job destruction.
We should have no illusions that the process will be turned back at the macro level. Today, the levers of Macroeconomics, the economic devices traditionally used as control levers for national economies, are broken or blocked.
