O CESE propõe medidas para evitar os rigores da austeridade no futuro e compensar o impacto negativo da gestão da passada crise

A gestão das futuras crises deve permitir um melhor equilíbrio entre objetivos orçamentais e sociais, para prevenir efeitos negativos sobre a capacidade económica, o mercado de trabalho e os regimes de segurança social dos países afetados.
