Exceptionally, Wolfgang Schaeuble, Germany’s very conservative Finance Minister also praises the Tory’s economic plan.
This is very unconventional indeed, as governments and international institutions like the IMF prefer to stay neutral.
It’s thought-provoking to speculate as to the reasons for this unusual intervention.
Firstly, the UK provides an excellent example of where austerity and strong growth have gone hand in hand.
Secondly, the UK under the Tories provides an exemplar of fiscal prudence and economic orthodoxy.
The bottom line is that the Tories have an economic plan that works. The downside is further austerity. The prize is creating more jobs and economic growth.
Surely, it’s obvious that a Labour government or a left-wing coalition in the UK, would be much higher risk for jobs and economic growth?
