Austerity doesn’t work

The evidence against austerity keeps on piling up, although the people who need to be convinced won’t be convinced.

Two possibilities:

  1. they don’t actually care about decreasing unemployment and avoiding contraction during recessions, or
  2. they want austerity for reasons that have nothing to do with expansion.

Those aren’t mutually exclusive.
