SummaryResponse to question for Jan 21-27: Is austerity dead in the context of global recovery?

It is a very subjective call first of all, if there is actually a need of austerity in the wake of a global recovery. What may be a boon for capital deficit economies would be a bane for the capital surplus economies. Some might argue that it would be actually counterproductive to be austere if you talk from a strictly economic view as it would lead to some stability in the small run, but would contribute to the job cuts and would contribute further to the slowdown.
