La inflación no existe

La inflación no existe | Global politics | Scoop.it
Si algo ha demostrado la guerra económica en su bullicioso caminar es que conceptos tales como "inflación" y "control cambiario" (los mayormente mencionados por la contra), analizados desde una perspectiva autónoma, parcialmente aislada y sin interacción con el hecho político, no nos dicen absolutamente nada. Pero más allá de los repetitivos análisis, ¿qué aspectos son necesarios abordar, políticamente, sobre la situación económica de Venezuela?

Greece votes No, putting united Europe in peril

Greece votes No, putting united Europe in peril | Global politics | Scoop.it
EU leaders call emergency summit Tuesday after the country delivered a clear rebuke.
Enrique Ferro's insight:

Leaving the polls early on Sunday, pensioner Maria Kladi, 65, said she voted No in protest at the austerity measures that have eroded living standards.

“I voted No because there’s no way we can accept being serfs in our own country,” she added, saying she did not fear a future outside the single currency. “Would it be any worse than this?”

12 people who ruined Greece

12 people who ruined Greece | Global politics | Scoop.it
History shows that a long line of leaders helped make Greece the economic basket case it is today.
Enrique Ferro's insight:

The troika – made up of the European Commission, European Central Bank, and International Monetary Fund — bears a fair share of the blame for Greece’s current state. The troika’s programs are based on over-optimistic growth projections, which have led to a number of revisions to Greece’s debt sustainability. Fiscal austerity has imposed a huge social cost upon the Greek people, pushing people out of work and into poverty, and leaving hundreds of thousands without access to public healthcare.

Greece’s impossible choice shames Europe

Greece’s impossible choice shames Europe | Global politics | Scoop.it
When you continuously kick a can down the road, one day the receptacle is so battered that it can be propelled no more. That day has finally arrived for the EU and Greece. Whatever the outcome of today’s landmark vote, Europe will never be the same again.
Enrique Ferro's insight:

Schulz, an archetypal Eurocrat, has never held high office in Germany. In fact, his biggest job in his homeland was as mayor of Würselen, a town near the Dutch and Belgian borders in Nord Rhein-Westfalen. Würselen has a population of 37,685. Nevertheless, this domestic non-entity has somehow managed to become the voice of Europe, in much the same way as previously obscure apparatchiks often suddenly became important in the old USSR, baffling western intelligence services. Schulz’s high-profile and huge power exposes the democratic deficit at the heart of the EU.

The Euro: The Folly of Political Currency

The Euro: The Folly of Political Currency | Global politics | Scoop.it
The Freeman is the quarterly publication of the Foundation for Economic Education, published by FEE since 1956
Enrique Ferro's insight:

The people of Europe are being conned. They do not need to sacrifice even more political sovereignty to a group of international bureaucrats and bankers. The dream of the euro—an integrated economic zone with a stable currency—can be achieved through the classical-liberal tenets of free trade and sound money. Continued experiments with fiat money regimes will lead us through a perpetual series of crises, until we are left with a single global fiat currency, the issuer of which has zero accountability to the hapless citizens forced to use it. According to many cynical observers, this after all may be the ultimate plan.
