Aznar: Spain will not emerge from the crisis more sympathetic socialism '
The former president of the Government, José María Aznar, has twelve prescriptions for ending the crisis, based on the economic policies he implemented in 1996, as reforms to give greater flexibility to the labor market, austerity in public spending and private management of public services. Thursday offered their solutions in the presentation of the book by Milton and Rose Friedman Choose Freedom, published by drip, the publisher of the Foundation for Analysis and Social Studies (FAES). "People should know that Spain is not going to get out of this crisis with higher doses of socialism nice," said Aznar after ensuring that the economic situation suffered by the Spanish is different from the rest of European countries by the growth of unemployment. Achacó domestic economic problems to "bad policies" of the current Socialist government and proposed to undo everything done by Zapatero. "It turns out that the reality was unpatriotic", ironically in reference to allegations of lack of patriotism that the Socialists blamed the PP when, in the last legislature, warned of the economic crisis. "And the self-patriots we have returned to the times of crisis and mass unemployment," he accused.
