Market-making vs. market-correcting

Market-making vs. market-correcting

 

This divide separates the actors and ideas supporting economic efficiency as a principle of social order from those arguing for market corrections as instruments of solidarity.

 

« Let us be honest: what is the purpose of funding investment projects in a number of countries if these countries do not make their own effort to carry out structural reforms?..»

Guy Verhofstadt

« People need to see opportunities and a decent level of protection everywhere in the EU. In terms of economic and social conditions we need to move closer together. This is what we call upwards convergence..»

Marianne Thyssen
