Gezonde economie = loonmatiging

Author

Abstract
17 heads of government of the eurozone have concluded a "competitivity pact", i.e. about wage policies, age of pensions, competitivity of corporations, reduction of deficit in government budgets, ao, that should be applied by all countries; otherwise sanctions might be taken. We examine what the effects on the population will be. Consumption will decrease by those groups who spend all of their income. Need will increase in families who already live near or below the poverty level, since social security benefits follow the evolution of wages. Reduced consumption in turn will lower sales, and then the number of jobs. While the measures are intended to strengthen businesses, they might well turn out to favour a recession.
