Be Outraged

Written by an international group of economists and social scientists, this report sets out alternative approaches and policies for Europe and all countries that rely on government cutbacks and austerity policies to cope with debt problems in Africa, Asia and Latin America. The report argues that continued deflation in developed countries will reduce growth in the rest of the world, worsening poverty among the poorest. The report argues that a recovery 'with a human face' needs to be inclusive: "expanding employment opportunities, sustaining health and education services, and providing social protection support for those below the poverty line, especially women, as a matter of social and economic justice".
