Excellente analyse de John Cochrane, Professeur à l'Université de Chicago : http://johnhcochrane.blogspot.ca/2012/03/austerity-stimulus-or-growth-now.html
En particulier, sur la crise grecque : "Is it irrelevant that Greece is 100th on the World Bank’s “ease of doing business” list, behind Yemen, 135th on “starting a business” and 155th on “protecting investors?” Is it irrelevant that professions from truck driving to pharmacies are still rigorously protected, that businesses can’t fire people, that (according to a Greek colleague) you can’t even get a driver’s license without paying a bribe? Does it not matter at all that, as the International Monetary Fund delicately put it in its latest report on Greece, the “structural reform program” aimed at “deeply ingrained structural rigidities in labor, product, and service markets” got nowhere? Does it not matter that Greece has a high combination of individual, corporate, wealth and social taxes, higher still under "austerity?" (...)
Keynesians urge devaluation to gain competitiveness. (...) [But] would lower wages compel you to invest money in Greece, surmount a thicket of regulation, expose yourself to the threats of wealth, property and business taxation, currency expropriation and capital controls, or even nationalization?"
Notons que ce corporatisme et cette socialisation de l'économie sont également très présents en France.
