I\’ve said for a long time that SOAS probably isn\’t where you\’d go to get an education in economics.
let’s have a Eurozone Ministry of Finance (Treasury) with the necessary fiscal muscle to deliver European public goods like more jobs, better wages and pensions and a sustainable environment.
Jobs, wages and pensions simply are not public goods.
They might be good for the public, desirable and all, but they\’re not public goods. They\’re both rivalrous and excludable, so they\’re doubly not public goods.
