What Europe Needs

The idea that the problem in Europe is an absence of inflation is ridiculous. If you are going to define inflation as rising consumer prices, the slower they rise, the better. If fact, if consumer prices were to fall that would be better still. So, Europe is not going to solve any economic problems by creating inflation. You will exacerbate them. What Europe needs, the same that America needs, is less government, fewer regulations, less government spending, less government debt, less social welfare programs and more free market capitalism. That is what is going to solve the problems.
