Should the Commission be continuing to support PPPs, including by issuing bonds, in view of the disastrous experiences in the UK - where over 25% of PPPs have failed, at great expense - and Portugal and Cyprus, where the Troika has diagnosed PPPs as a key element in the fiscal crises? should we rather encourage investment financed by government revenues or borrowing which is far cheaper than PPPs?

Labour flexibility and structural reforms has caused millions of unemployment in Spain and they have destroyed 300.000 public jobs!! About youth guarantee?? We have 62% of youth unemployment! NEETS exists because they are tired of looking for a new job. By the way, those who work are mostly precariouss.

How much revenue is lost by aggressive corporate tax planning, dodging, evasion? How to ensure that corporations pay their fair share when the EC comes under such massive corporate lobby?

Sollte die Kommission IHRE "Dualität" (Stieglitz zitieren und neoliberale Wirtschaftspolitik machen) werden wir UNSERE Dualität leben: Europa lieben und aus der EU austreten
