Economics One-Pager Archive from Levy Economics Institute
Even under optimistic assumptions, the policy status quo being enforced in Greece cannot be relied upon to help recover lost incomes and employment within any reasonable time frame. And while a widely discussed public investment program funded by European institutions would help, a more innovative, better-targeted solution is required to address Greece's protracted unemployment crisis: an "employer of last resort" (ELR) plan offering paid work in public projects, financed by issuing a nonconvertible "fiscal currency"--the Geuro.
