Both have nothing against taking on more public debt and ramrodding more statism down the people’s throats.
These people are so out of touch with reality that it’s surreal to watch from the sidelines as both side races with each other to play the part of the fool.
The laws of economics stops for no one, whether you’re a classical liberal/libertarian conservative, a neo-statist or even a full throated one. Today’s politics are centered around dividing an economic pie into even more thin slices while they insist on bloating the public debt (in the vain hope of stimulating the economy).
The Center party (and National Coalition) insists on making cuts to the state bureaucracy while insisting on taking on yet more debt to pay for mass immigration of mostly unemployable men from Iraq, who are supposedly to be “the ones” to help maintain the socialist welfare state. The fact that we have a terribly stubborn (systemic) high unemployment rate of +230 000 people seems to be of no significance to these (impenetrable by fact) leaders.
NOTE: The rest of the political field want to keep things as they are and add more debt. It will all collapse in on itself as it must, because as I said earlier, the laws of economics stops for no one, especially for fools.
Greens Party chair Ville Niinistö went on TV1’s morning politics show on Saturday to criticise the government’s politics. He also lays bare his party’s own more moderate line.
“It is a fact of political economy that hard cuts weaken economic growth. Many experts have warned that Sipilä’s government is making rash decisions without accounting for their consequences. Sipilä is taking a risk by going fully right-wing instead of implementing reforms that would boost employment,” Niinistö said.
Niinistö said that the Greens would seek public sector stability over two full parliamentary terms instead of the government’s 4-6-year plan.
“When we leave off cutting wealth from low earners and education the welfare state will bounce back from the recession stronger and we wouldn’t need to take on more debt.”
