Background on the Austerity Model Charles Woolfson will talk on his forthcoming book. Title: The Contradictions of Austerity: The socio-economic costs of the neoliberal Baltic model.
The great financial crisis of 2008 and the ensuing global economic and financial turmoil have launched a search for "models" for recovery. The advocates of austerity present the Baltic States as countries that through discipline and sacrifice showed the way out of crisis.
