What expects the private environment from the government during the crisis?

Few months ago, the economic crisis was still, in the opinion of many, an excuse for companies to reduce costs, an "over-fed" issue by the press, a pretext for the Government not to increase the salaries in the budgetary sector, etc. Even among those who accepted the existence of a crisis, it dominated the view that it will be like a wave, which will last 5-6 months, will sweep some companies in the way, will sway some imbalances that were obvious to everybody, after which things will return "to normal" just as they were before.

Today no one doubts the reality and the depth of this crisis, that in fact affects all countries and all branches of economy at the same time, that it will be a lasting crisis and will take years for the things to return as they were in the summer of 2008. And in some fields maybe it will not ever return to those peaks. read more»
