Abstract

This paper provides an alternative view to the new consensus approach,from the standpoint of the monetary theory of production. It is shownthat output growth is demand driven, so that fiscal policies, as well as directstate intervention above all in the labor market, are effective for increasingoutput and employment. This also applies to the current dynamics, particularlyto the effects of the economic policy of the European Union, where, as will be shown, respect for the Maastricht parameters has contributed to determine poormacroeconomic performance.
