Alternative Solutions to the Debt Crisis

International conference, 6-8 March 2014, Brussels

 

 

Socializing losses and privatizing gains? Cutting social spending and wages? There is no alternative? We have reasons to doubt it! That is why we asked for alternative solutions to the debt crisis.

The new conference report (pdf, 3 mb) gives insights to the contributions and presents alternative strategies to exit the debt crisis.
