Red line: Stop cutting, start investing
Austerity is destroying the fabric of our society and economy. It is the prosperity of people which will fix our problems, not their poverty
THE idea that we can reinvigorate our economy by punishing the vulnerable for the irresponsible actions of elites is nonsensical.
Austerity is often portrayed as a short term means to balance the budget or a necessary evil, but rolling back our welfare state without questioning the volatile structure of our economy only exposes us to further instability amidst ever-widening inequality.
