Social justice index reveals 'highly explosive situation' in Europe | EurActiv

Social justice index reveals 'highly explosive situation' in Europe | EurActiv

Greece at the bottom
Greece, which is at the bottom of the ranking, struggles with both a youth unemployment rate of nearly 60%, a rapid increase in the risk of poverty particularly among children and youth, a health care system badly undermined by austerity measures, discrimination against minorities as a result of strengthened radical political forces, and an enormous mountain of debt that represents a mortgage on the future of coming generations.
The Bertelsmann Stiftung said these prospects represent a significant danger to Greece’s political and social stability.

Jagadeesh Gokhale, NCPA, : "Unfunded Obligations of European Countries"

Europe’s Bargain by Michael Spence - Project Syndicate

Europe’s Bargain by Michael Spence - Project Syndicate



"the European Commission published its sixth report on economic, social, and territorial cohesion (a term that can be roughly translated as equality and inclusiveness)"



"The EU’s cohesion strategy is admirable and smart. Whereas such investment in the past was heavily tilted toward physical infrastructure – particularly transport – the agenda has shifted to a more balanced set of targets, including human capital, employment, the economy’s knowledge and technology base, information technology, low-carbon growth, and governance."

Ashoka Mody at Pieria : "The OMT’s fragile foundations"

The OMT’s fragile foundations



"The Greek bailout is almost certainly illegal by the ECJ’s benchmarks. To be legal under Article 125, the financial assistance must be repaid with an appropriate margin. The size of the appropriate margin is presumably a policy decision. But Greece will not repay the vast bulk of its official financial assistance. At the end of a grossly inefficient process, the burden of the sizeable eventual fiscal transfer to Greece will be shared without democratic accountability. In questioning the legality of the OMT, the German Court is essentially asking why the collective incentives will not lead once again to a Greece-like outcome."
