Montesquieu Institute: from science to society

Haagsch College 'European dilemma: making drastic cutbacks or stimulate the economy?'

Onno Ruding

On 25 November 2013, Onno Ruding, former Minister of Finance of the Netherlands, gave his point of view about countercyclical budgetary policy during the second lecture in a row concerning the 'State of Europe'. Should a government stimulate the economy by raising its outlays or should it drastically limit its expenses?

'Haagsch College' is an initiative of Newscollege. The Montesquieu Institute supports this initiative by means of a substantive contribution, providing the fact sheets for the lectures.
