HOWARD DAVIES: '...Por lo tanto, esta es una época de nerviosismo en los mercados financieros de Londres. Necesitamos nuevos expertos, que no vengan engalanados con siglas menospreciadas como por ejemplo “FMI”, expertos que tendrán que explicar los hechos desagradables de la vida económica a un público altamente desconfiado. Nadie debería tomar la irónica sugerencia de Brecht en serio. Los británicos han expresado lo que desean, y se debe encontrar la manera de alcanzar esos deseos al menor costo económico posible....'

ADAIR TURNER defiende la financiación monetaria (dinero helicóptero): '....el argumento contra la financiación monetaria que realmente importa no depende de tecnicismos acerca de futuros impuestos implícitos, sino del peligro de que si violamos el tabú y la tratamos como una opción aceptable, los políticos querrán usarla una y otra vez....'

DANIEL GROS against fine's forgiveness to Spain and Portugal about SGP:
'...the decline in support for European fiscal rules carries serious risks. If the most concrete elements of the eurozone’s governance framework are not applied rigorously, what will compel member states to undertake reforms and stabilize their debt levels? Vague exhortations will not work. It seems that the crisis, and the untenably large risk premia for highly indebted governments that followed, has already been forgotten.
Sometimes the most important thing that happens is what doesn’t happen – or, to paraphrase Sherlock Holmes, it’s the dog that doesn’t bark in the night. The lack of response to the European Commission’s non-enforcement in Spain and Portugal of the terms of the Stability and Growth Pact is one of those times.

Three Paths to European Disintegration(phillip legrain):'... The EU’s leaders need to wake up. With disintegration looming, they urgently need to demonstrate to anxious Europeans that the benefits of the EU outweigh its costs....'
The post-Brexit turmoil appears to have boosted support for mainstream politicians and the EU. But this sentiment is likely to fade as the Brexit fallout begins to sap eurozone economic performance and further polarizes politics in the member states.

WOLFGANG MUNCHAU (FT): '...The solution to the Dutch problem — and that of the UK — would be a form of associate EU membership. This would allow centralised decision-making among core members; others would regain some independence from Brussels. Associated member states would be allowed to be detached from central policy areas — the euro, the Schengen free-travel zone, possibly aspects of the single market — while remaining members of the customs union....'
It is hard to get a positive answer these days when you ask people a question about the EU, no matter what the question is. The Dutch referendum last week was about the ratification of theEU-Ukraine association agreement. The vote was 61 per cent

MARTIN WOLF (ft): '....In designing the structure of taxes and benefits, such lifetime effects are at least as important as those at any moment. These effects include the role of the welfare state as both insurer and bank. Government plays these roles in all high-income nations, including even the US. It is a desirable one. Yet careful design is also needed. The starting point must be with greater awareness of this truth....'
How is the “welfare state” to be justified? The usual answer is that it is a way for the well-off to help the less well-off. But this is not its only role.It is also a “piggy bank”, as Nicholas Barr of the London School of Economics has argued. More

BARRY EICHENGREEN about IEO's report critizising the IMF policy;
'...It would be better to allow an independent management team to make decisions free of political interference, in the manner of a central bank policy committee. But this presupposes freeing the IMF from dependence on financial contributions from its regional stakeholders. And it requires IMF management to demonstrate that it can consistently make decisions based on program countries’ economic interest, not on the political preferences of powerful national shareholders....'
The IMF's Independent Evaluation Office, established after Asia's 1998 financial crisis to assess IMF policies and programs at arm's length, has issued a comprehensive critique of the Fund’s role in Europe’s post-2008 crisis. The takeaway: money talked loudest.

ADAIR TURNER about hellicopter money
In the growing debate about the pros and cons of a monetary financed fiscal stimulus (a.k.a. helicopter money) it is argued by some participants that a money-financed stimulus will have no more effect than a debt financed stimulus since:

Populism, Past and Present(Bien Ami):'... But, rather than focus on real solutions, today’s populists are often appealing to people’s basest instincts. In many cases, they are emphasizing feelings over facts, stoking fear and hate, and relying on nativist appeals. And, in fact, they are less interested in tackling economic grievances than they are in using those grievances to win support for an agenda that would roll back social and cultural openness....'
It seems that practically no Western democracy nowadays is immune to right-wing populism. While populist rhetoric seems to be reaching fever pitch, with far-reaching consequences, the reality is that the strain of nativism that it represents has long bedeviled democratic politics.

Helicopter money could yet take off (SKIDELSKY.): '...That is why contemporary advocates of helicopter money like Willem Buiter and Adair Turner see it mainly in terms of monetary financing of additional government spending. The government should pay for, say, an investment programme not by issuing debt to the public but by borrowing from the central bank. This will increase the government’s deficit, but not the national debt, since a loan by the central bank to the government is not intended to be repaid. Thus the government acquires an asset but no corresponding liability.

However, this is only one possible form of helicopter money. Another way of achieving the desired increase in spending was suggested by the Swiss businessman, Silvio Gesell, in 1906. His idea was to give cash directly to households,,,'

DANIEL GROS: (Interesante e innovador= '....Hay dos problemas principales con el actual abordaje de los bancos centrales. En primer lugar, los bancos centrales se centran en los precios al consumidor, y dichos precios son el objetivo equivocado. Los precios al consumidor están cayendo por una razón muy simple: los precios de la energía y de otras materias primas han disminuido, en más de la mitad, durante los últimos dos años. El descenso de dichos precios es, por lo tanto, temporal, y los bancos centrales deberían mirar más allá de dicha disminución, de manera similar a cuando ellos miraron más allá del aumento de los precios al consumidor durante la época en la que los precios del petróleo estaban en alza.
Por el contrario, los bancos centrales deberían centrarse en la tasa de aumento de los ingresos, que se mide como el crecimiento del PIB nominal; al fin de cuentas, esto es lo que es de importancia para las empresas y los gobiernos que se encuentran altamente endeudados. Según lo que muestra esta medida, no hay deflación: El índice de precios del PIB (llamado deflactor del PIB) en los países desarrollados está aumentando en un 1 a 1,5%, en promedio. ..'

Central banks throughout the developed world have been overwhelmed by the fear of deflation. They shouldn’t be: Across the developed world, financing conditions are extremely favorable; the broadest price indices are increasing steadily; GDP continues to grow; and the labor market is improving.

SIMON JOHNSON: UK must stay in the EU.
- better for the growth and trade
- business friendly
- will take part in the TTIP (trade)
- Brexit would be a source of financial instability: risk premia, cost of funding, regulation,....
'....it is difficult to see how the UK’s global stature and influence would increase if it left the EU – particularly given the significant adverse impact such an outcome would have on the British economy....'
On June 23, the UK will hold a popular referendum on whether to leave the EU. Two recent reports on the likely impact of "Brexit" on the British economy leave little doubt that the UK would lose far more than it gained should voters decide to go it alone.
