a política de destruição económica europeia aos olhos de Stiglitz

“The answer, even though they see over and over again that austerity leads to collapse of the economy, the answer over and over [from politicians] is more austerity. It reminds me of medieval medicine, It is like blood-letting, where you took blood out of a patient because the theory was that there were bad humours. And very often, when you took the blood out, the patient got sicker. The response then was more blood-letting until the patient very nearly died. What is happening in Europe is a mutual suicide pact”

Joseph Stiglitz, Prémio Nobel da Economia em 2001, a 17 de Janeiro em Hong Kong numa conferência organizada pelo Fórum Financeiro Asiático.
