Europe’s original bailouts were flawed. They were biased toward tax hikes to boost revenue, with too little thought for pro-growth reforms. A serious Greek government would offer to press ahead with privatization and deregulation in exchange for some leeway to cut tax rates along with government spending cuts. But Syriza has insisted on a return to something like the status quo ante, with higher spending, anti-growth tax policies and delays or halts in deregulation.
Comentário: Aqui está um verdadeiro programa de governo, negociar com a UE uma diminuição da carga fiscal em conjunto com um programa acelerado de privatizações e de desregulação. Aplica-se à Grécia, a Portugal e a qualquer país na nossa situação.
