Mankiw on World Economy

Prof. Mankiw, one of my role models, talks about the world economy. Already more than one year passed since it came out, it is still worth reading carefully: Four Nations, Four Lessons

(1)Zimbabwe: Printing money too fast results in hyper inflation.

(2)Japan: Increasing the govt. spending results in the deficit and debt.

(3)Greece: Keeping the government large results in higher interest rate and default.

(4)France: Making the public welfare better results in higher tax and less work. 

After all, stabilizing the national economy is, at any rate, pricey.
