This is an excellent read from Andrew Watt, published in the Social Journal Europe. It’s HIGHLY RECOMMENDED, in my view. Check it out!

via Peer’s Populism? Or Econ 101 For A Would-be Chancellor – Andrew Watt – Social Journal Europe.

Here is Social Journal Europe bio on Andrew Watt:

Andrew Watt is Head of the department Macroeconomic Policy Institute (IMK – Institut für Makroökonomie und Konjunkturforschung) in the Hans-Böckler Foundation. He was previously senior researcher at the European Trade Union Institute, where he coordinated research on economic, employment and social policies. For many years he has focused on European economic and employment policies and conducted European-comparative socio-economic research. Special interest: economic governance in the euro area and the coordination of macroeconomic policies and wage setting. He has served as an advisor to a considerable number of European and national institutions, think tanks, foundations and political parties.

Personally, I tend to endorse much of Andrew Watt’s argument which is clear and concise. It still very much looks like it’s Angela Merkel‘s re-election to lose; there’s not much stopping her apart from a catastrophe.

I am interested to see if German policy changes post election, in September.

Any thoughts?
