Quote from: Sheilbh on September 12, 2022, 07:54:13 AMThe same pattern of lower support among the young and the elderly and strongest support amont peak working age people is also present in France, Spain, Italy, Germany and the Netherlands. I believe it's similar in some other Western European countries too (it'd be interesting to know about Eastern Europe). But I was wondering if anyone had any theories?

QuoteMujtaba Rahman@Mij_EuropeThe Commission is planning to leverage cost of living crisis to propose major changes to EU fiscal rules (Stability & Growth Pact) in Oct - effectively jettisoning preventive arm, abandoning annual structural deficit targets & assessing debt sustainability over 10(not 1)yrs 1/The core idea is to move away from top down, uniform benchmarks to a more tailored, individualised application of the rules. Member states would devise their own debt reduction plan for 10yr alongside reform & investment plans; Bxl would do DSA & make recommendation to Council 2/-No 1/20 debt reduction rule -No annual structural fiscal deficit reduction-No reference to output gaps-Only benchmark Commission wd consider wd relate to public expendituresWill Berlin agree?
