Policy Should Focus on the Need to Overcome Private Indebtedness

Savvakis Savvides

MPRA Paper from University Library of Munich, Germany

Abstract: The author emphasizes the need to address private indebtedness as the main cause of the problem which manifests itself in a huge amount of non-performing loans following the bail-in of deposits of 2013. The focus should not be on how to compensate depositors or bond holders or even shareholders of the affected banks. It should be on how the over-indebted businesses and households can lighten their debt burden and be in a position to engage in normal economic activity in a stable and sustainable manner.
