Will you only include the short run or also go into the medium term and even the long run aspects of the problem?
25.04.2014 22:12Dirk.Vanwynsberghe
A long term approach will be the standard, the short run fluctuation the exception that causes the problem. However, long term systematic is needed to understand the pertinent nature of the problem

One of the reasons why the economy goes into a recession is becauce of the central banks policies to reduce inflation.

Not only the anti inflation policy but also the budget deficit reduction and the governemt debt reduction are able to trigger a recession or to worse the ongoing one. We will discuss this in great detail using the recent experience in several countries.
