Another quick (political) reaction to the package

Conditionality in these circumstances is as powerful a constraint as they get. But what kind of stable political coalition in parliament in support of what kind of government will be able to pass in the next three years the kind of legislation required in the fields of justice, health, education, housing market, local government, scrutiny and elimination of public or semi-public entities, and regulated professions? And what technical capabilities,  expertise and - especially - independent agencies are there to adequately perform the kind of analysis and cost-benefit evaluations prescribed in the package? Not sure.

  1. You are right Pedro. Let us say that this is a programme of a non existent political party that should belong to that grand coalition. If the political actors to implement it do not exist in parliament how it is going to be implemented? With those who oppose the reforms?...
