Japanese translation of Statement by SPD-Troika: "Finding a way out of the crisis – growth and employment in Europe"

The economic and social costs of narrowly austerity-focused policy-making, i.e. of a singular focusing on budgetary discipline, are highly destructive – indeed, they threaten European unity. This is evident in the observation that in the past two years, the European crisis has not calmed down, but rather intensified. Moreover, the credit risks that Germany is backing have not declined but instead risen massively.

 

ドイツ社会民主党「トロイカ」による、ヨーロッパ経済成長協定の締結を促す声明文

Die ökonomischen und sozialen Folgen einer einseitig auf Ausgabenkürzungen abzielenden Politik sind fatal. Europa droht daran zu zerbrechen. So hat sich in den vergangenen zwei Jahren die europäische Krise nicht entspannt, sondern verschärft, und die Kreditrisiken, für die Deutschland haften muss, sind nicht gesunken, sondern massiv gestiegen.
