Did #Austerity Cause #Brexit? I have received some comments on the paper that have engaged with the data, but am more than happy to stand my ground. Here is why...
Recently, Noah Carl @NuffieldCollege studied national level opinion poll time series, arguing that the lack of evidence of an uptick in post 2010 support for Leave is evidence suggesting that austerity had nothing to do with #Brexit. See his comment here
So what are the problems with this approach.
1) Opinion polls do not rely on the same sampling population, so a lot of time variation that is so crucial given the tight referendum results are well within the margins of error

La #Turchia ha una crisi di debito estero e quindi 3 soluzioni
A) la soluzione #FMI: fare #austerity per frenare i consumi ed abbattere l’import e quindi correggere la bilancia commerciale per recuperare valuta estera con cui ripagare il debito. Ma pagheranno i suoi cittadini

Parliamo di #moneta. Prima domanda: sapete chi crea la quasi totalità del #denaro in circolazione?
In realtà la maggioranza delle persone, anche nel sondaggio offline, risponde non so. Risposte: lo #stato conia le #monete che solo solo lo 0,3% del valore totale... nel #bilancio #bancadItalia le #banconote sono solo il 8% scarso del totale #massa #monetaria #M2 in #Italia...
