Ideer uden handling

The Great Depression provided a battle of ideas, and for the next fifty years there was no doubt in anybody’s mind that John Maynard Keynes – and those with similar ideas – had cured the world economy during the Great Depression.

Today individual economists – like Joseph Stiglitz and Paul Krugman – provide ideas that are alternative to those of the mainstream, but no critical mass seems to be created in opposition to what both Stiglitz and Krugman have referred to as the economic suicide of Europe.
