Um “Nobel” de Economia desconcertante (Prémio de 2013)

Ao atribuir o prémio a Eugene Fama, o “pai” da teoria dos “mercados eficientes”, e a Robert Shiller, um dos investigadores da “exuberância irracional” dos mesmos, o Comité sueco deu uma no cravo e outra na ferradura, cinco anos depois da segunda maior crise financeira dos últimos 100 anos.

Eric Maskin (Nobel Prize in Economic Sciences 2007): “Austerity must be gradual”

“Imposing austerity when economies are in bad shape, does not seem appropriate. The slump will be longer. Austerity must be gradual. So sharply is counterproductive. Budget adjustments must be implemented in the long run, not immediately. You should reduce budgets in good times, not in bad times. Budgets should have been reduced during the good times. But this wasn’t done.” It is the view on fiscal adjustments of Eric Maskin, Nobel Prize in Economic Sciences of 2007, interviewed by Jorge Nascimento Rodrigues in Lisbon.
