Many prominent economists, including many with Nobel prizes, believe that Europe's economy, like the world economy, is desperately in need of more demand. Fortunately, the NYT is there to set them right.

It told readers today that social democratic parties in Europe must come to grips with the "necessity" of givebacks by workers. It would be great if the NYT could lay out its economic theory more fully so that those of us less expert in economics could understand how less demand in the current economy will spur growth and employment.

This new economic theory will make exciting reading if the NYT would share it with readers.
