Austerity in Slovenia? What Austerity?

Having been challenged for my repeated rants against austerity economics, having had someone actually write that there are little or no such measures in Slovenia, I did the post-modern thing and typed austerity and slovenia into google.

First entry:

If it looks like a duck, and admits it’s a duck without torture…

One comment on “Austerity in Slovenia? What Austerity?

  1. Who Cares says:

    1. I never claimed there were no austerity measures taken
    2. Measures taken are not what I would consider severe
    3. I still claim austerity is not the main reason for the economical situation we’re in and this blogpost of yours does not refute that in any way

    And let me just mention today’s news. The Prime Minister of Slovenia is now expecting the Defense minister (whom I mentioned in my short rant) to step down. Obviously he does not want to and the Social Democrats are now threatening the coalition, causing… political instability. Again. Now don’t get me wrong, I’m not saying that this is the problem, I’m just trying to give you a little bit of a broader picture.
