• What are The European Union Austerity Measures/Policies? - Greece Austerity

    Video infographic explaining the European Austerity Measures/Policies implemented by the EU government. Austerity measures are attempts to significantly curtail government spending in an effort to control public-sector debt, particularly when a nation is in jeopardy of defaulting on its bonds. The global economic downturn that began in 2008 left many governments with reduced tax revenues and exposed what some believed were unsustainable spending levels. Several European countries, including the United Kingdom, Greece and Spain, have turned to austerity as a way to alleviate budget concerns. As a result, their budget deficits skyrocketed. Austerity became almost imperative in Europe, where eurozone members don't have the ability to address mounting debts by printing their own currency. As...

The global economic downturn that began in 2008 left many governments with reduced tax revenues and exposed what some believed were unsustainable spending levels.

Austerity became almost imperative in Europe, where eurozone members don't have the ability to address mounting debts by printing their own currency. As their default risk increased, creditors put pressure on these countries to aggressively tackle spending. While the goal of austerity measures is to reduce government debt, their effectiveness remains a matter of sharp debate. Supporters argue that massive deficits can suffocate the broader economy, thereby limiting tax revenue. However, opponents believe that government programs are the only way to make up for reduced personal consumption during a recession. Robust public sector spending, they suggest, reduces unemployment and therefore increases the number of income-tax payers. Austerity can be contentious for political, as well as economic, reasons. Popular targets for spending cuts include pensions for government workers, welfare and government-sponsored healthcare, programs that disproportionately affect low-income earners at a time when they're financially vulnerable.

Governments today in both Europe and the United States have succeeded in casting government spending as reckless wastefulness that has made the economy worse. In contrast, they have advanced a policy of draconian budget cuts--austerity--to solve the financial crisis. We are told that we have all lived beyond our means and now need to tighten our belts. This view conveniently forgets where all that debt came from. Not from an orgy of government spending, but as the direct result of bailing out, recapitalizing, and adding liquidity to the broken banking system. Through these actions private debt was rechristened as government debt while those responsible for generating it walked away scot free, placing the blame on the state, and the burden on the taxpayer. That burden now takes the form of a global turn to austerity, the policy of reducing domestic wages and prices to restore competitiveness and balance the budget. The problem, according to political economist Mark Blyth, is that austerity is a very dangerous idea. First of all, it doesn't work. As the past four years and countless historical examples from the last 100 years show, while it makes sense for any one state to try and cut its way to growth, it simply cannot work when all states try it simultaneously: all we do is shrink the economy. In the worst case, austerity policies worsened the Great Depression and created the conditions for seizures of power by the forces responsible for the Second World War: the Nazis and the Japanese military establishment. As Blyth amply demonstrates, the arguments for austerity are tenuous and the evidence thin. Rather than expanding growth and opportunity, the repeated revival of this dead economic idea has almost always led to low growth along with increases in wealth and income inequality. Austerity demolishes the conventional wisdom, marshaling an army of facts to demand that we recognize austerity for what it is, and what it costs us. About the Author: Mark Blyth is a faculty fellow at the Watson Institute, professor of international political economy in Brown's Political Science Department, and director of the University's undergraduate programs in development studies and international relations. He is the author of Great Transformations: Economic Ideas and Institutional Change in the Twentieth Century; editor of The Routledge Handbook of International Political Economy: IPE as a Global Conversation, which surveys different schools of IPE around the globe; and co-editor of a volume on constructivist theory and political economy titled Constructing the International Economy. He is working on a new book that questions the political and economic sustainability of liberal democracies, called The End of the Liberal World? Blyth is a member of the Warwick Commission on International Financial Reform. He is a member of the editorial board of the Review of International Political Economy, and his articles have appeared in journals such as the American Political Science Review, Perspectives on Politics, Comparative Politics, and World Politics. He has a PhD in political science from Columbia University and taught at Johns Hopkins University from 1997 to 2009. This talk was hosted by Boris Debic on behalf of Authors@Google.

GPIA Professors Richard Wolff and Barry Herman share their insights, led by chair and moderator Achilles Kallergie, PhD Candidate in the GPIA program. What austerity is about is shifting the burden of an economic crisis from one part of the population to another. The mass of Greek people did not force Andreas Papandreou to borrow money. The mass of the Greek people didn't know about or have much to do with fiscal policy at the national level. In fact, governments, bankers, leading industrialists, ship builders, the major players of the Greek economy, got together, as their counterparts did elsewhere, to produce the decisions that then, in the wake of the international collapse of capitalism, became unsustainable, producing a crisis in Greece. Once that had happened, there was only one question left: Who was going to pay the cost of all the debt Greece has run up or all the production decisions made that have left Greece without the capacity to export, with a dependence on imports etc.? And at that point, as has happened in every country - Greece is in no way unique - the wealthy and the business community went to work, with their resources and their business connections, to make sure that they didn't pay the price.

In Ireland we have people struggling on housing waiting lists, hospital waiting lists, in a way that you can see that the policy development is towards the big global corporations for profit and not for people. I believe, the people that I know, the SYRIZA delegation, whether it's Stelios Kouloglou, Dimitrios Papadimoulis, all of the Greek MEPS, and the Greek government -I have been following closely what's happening... I believe that having a progressive government like that will afford the people the change, the positive change, the democratic change, based on equality and human rights more than what happened unfortunately for the people of the south of Ireland, because they have been left behind in the South of Ireland. I don't believe that your government, when it has its economy on its hands, under its control, I do believe and hope and will expect that the SYRIZA government will put people before profit.

Τι έχετε να τους πείτε; -Ο ελληνικός λαός έχει περάσει δύσκολα για πολλά χρόνια. Και βγαίνουν από την άλλη άκρη του τούνελ και σε αντίθεση με τον λαό της Ιρλανδίας - ο λαός της Νότιας Ιρλανδίας δεν είχε προοδευτική κυβέρνηση όπως εσείς στην Ελλάδα: δεν είχαμε ΣΥΡΙΖΑ, δεν είχαμε το είδος της πολιτικής που πιστεύω ότι θα λάβει χώρα (στην Ελλάδα). Στην Ιρλανδία έχουμε ανθρώπους που βρίσκονται σε οικιακούς καταλόγους αναμονής, σε νοσοκομειακούς καταλόγους αναμονής, με τέτοιο τρόπο ώστε να βλέπετε ότι η πολιτική λειτουργεί υπέρ μεγάλων παγκόσμιων εταιριών με σκοπό το κέρδος και όχι τον άνθρωπο.

Πιστεύω ότι έχοντας μια τέτοια προοδευτική κυβέρνηση θα προσφέρει στον λαό την αλλαγή, τη θετική αλλαγή, τη δημοκρατική αλλαγή που βασίζεται στην ισότητα και τα ανθρώπινα δικαιώματα περισσότερο από ό, τι συνέβη δυστυχώς για τους κατοίκους της Νότιας Ιρλανδίας, μιας και έχουν μείνει πίσω στη Νότια Ιρλανδία.

It´s a problem for the banks and therefore it´s the center of the political debate because of their political power." But for the population polls show the problem is jobs. "The lack of jobs is destroying a whole generation with all kinds of consequences for the future. In Europe it is even worse. And it is also harming the economy. A huge amount of potential growth is being destroyed because we have to worry about the non-existent threat of inflation." The public just has less and less say when it comes to neoliberal policies, social cuts and free trade. "It´s not irreversible and there is plenty of protests. It might crystallize into popular movements which will compel serious changes. But it´s a long way to go and Germany is in the center of it because of its power."

The Merriam-Webster Dictionary editors have pronounced the word "austerity" to be the Word of the Year for 2010. If that's true -- and for the record I don't believe it is -- all I can say is: "It's about time, and bring it on!"

There was a massive turnout on the streets of Buenos Aires Wednesday, part of a national strike called by Argentina's unions. They oppose a series of austerity measures pushed by President Mauricio Macri. He said the measures are necessary to fight inflation and turn around a flagging economy. Argentina's unions are traditionally powerful, but wage negotiations are just part of the tension between trade union leaders and the government. CGTN's Joel Richards reports.
