Sen on "The Crisis of European Democracy"

Here, in today's New York Times. It's really about the lack of forethought, theoretical justification, and democratic discussion of austerity measures that are playing havoc throughout and beyond the Eurozone. As usual, Sen's argument is thoughtful and incisive, but it is unlikely to convert the deficit hawks, with their "let-them-eat-cake" attitude about those who are bearing the brunt of the suffering created by the bankers and politicians, who don't suffer from cuts in public and social services.
