Égalité et égalitarisme En Citations Philosophie

Friedrich Hayek

Friedrich Hayek explique les dérives de l’égalitarisme:

« There is all the difference in the world between treating people equally and attempting to make them equal. While the first is the condition of a free society, the second means, as De Tocqueville described it, ‘a new form of servitude’. »

L’austrité Économie En Chiffres Europe Récession

N’en déplaise aux keynésiens, l’austérité économique peut fonctionner:

Austérité

Pour la Grèce, les taux explosent alors que du côté de l’Irlande on est presque revenu au niveau d’avant la crise.

Lors du dernier trimestre, malgré la crise qui secoue l’Union Européenne, le PIB irlandais a cru de 1,6% et la demande intérieur a progressé de 0,8%.

Voici ce que disait Paul Krugman du plan d’austérité irlandais le 29 juin 2010: « That’s why the Irish debacle is so important. All that savage austerity was supposed to bring rewards; the conventional wisdom that this would happen is so strong that one often reads news reports claiming that it has, in fact, happened, that Ireland’s resolve has impressed and reassured the financial markets. But the reality is that nothing of the sort has taken place: virtuous, suffering Ireland is gaining nothing. Of course, I know what will happen next: we’ll hear that the Irish just aren’t doing enough, and must do more. If we’ve been bleeding the patient, and he has nonetheless gotten sicker, well, we clearly need to bleed him some more. »

EU bans claim that water can prevent dehydration
The Daily Telegraph

Brussels bureaucrats were ridiculed yesterday after banning drink manufacturers from claiming that water can prevent dehydration.

EU officials concluded that, following a three-year investigation, there was no evidence to prove the previously undisputed fact.

Producers of bottled water are now forbidden by law from making the claim and will face a two-year jail sentence if they defy the edict, which comes into force in the UK next month.

Last night, critics claimed the EU was at odds with both science and common sense. Conservative MEP Roger Helmer said: “This is stupidity writ large.

“The euro is burning, the EU is falling apart and yet here they are: highly-paid, highly-pensioned officials worrying about the obvious qualities of water and trying to deny us the right to say what is patently true.

“If ever there were an episode which demonstrates the folly of the great European project then this is it.”
