Katastrofa! IMF priporoča Japonski, da dvigne plače … v javnem sektorju

Japonski, ki se bori s pošastjo deflacije zaradi depresivnega povpraševanja, IMF svetuje naj dvigne plače oziroma začne zasledovati cilj rasti plač, da bi tako spodbudila rast povpraševanja. Natančneje, Japonska naj bi dvignila plače v gospodarstvu in javnem sektorju ter minimalno plačo.

Gospodarstvo seveda ni navdušeno (konkurenčnost izvoza!), ampak počakajte šele na jastrebe v poslovnih časnikih in naše gospodarske zborničarje, ki bodo znoreli zaradi predloga dviga plač v javnem sektorju. Kaj če bo IMF to predlagal tudi EU in Sloveniji?! To bi bila pa katastrofa za izvoz, ane? (kaj pa povečanje konkurenčnosti skozi tečaj jena?)

Oni bi zniževali plače in izdatke v javnem sektorju, niso pa preštudirali uvoda v makroekonomijo in ne znajo povedati, kako bi drugače spodbudili mrtvo domače povpraševanje.

Japan should adopt a target for wages growth, lift pay in the public sector and raise the minimum wage as part of efforts to boost incomes and spending in the economy, the International Monetary Fund said on Tuesday.

The call came as the Fund slashed its growth forecasts for the world’s third largest economy and urged leaders attending IMF and World Bank meetings this week to take urgent action to revive demand globally.

Japanese Prime Minister Shinzo Abe has touted wage hikes as critical in ending years of stubborn deflation, but has so far gained only lukewarm support from private business.

The IMF recommended he take bolder action.

“Building on recent achievements, the authorities should consider adopting a – softly enforceable – wage growth target, supported by higher public sector and minimum wages,” the Fund said in its latest global outlook.
