P 4593 Paul Krugman

Meanwhile, what are the lessons for the rest of us?

The deficit hawks are already trying to appropriate the European crisis, presenting it as an object lesson in the evils of government red ink. What the crisis really demonstrates, however, is the dangers of putting yourself in a policy straitjacket. When they joined the euro, the governments of Greece, Portugal and Spain denied themselves the ability to do some bad things, like printing too much money; but they also denied themselves the ability to respond flexibly to events.

And when crisis strikes, governments need to be able to act. That’s what the architects of the euro forgot — and the rest of us need to remember.

Yukio Hatoyama, 63, does not look like a revolutionary. Scion of an old political family and heir to a fortune made in tires, the Japanese Prime Minister was entirely predictable in his early career as a rising politician in the conservative Liberal Democratic Party (LDP).

But while no revolutionary himself, Hatoyama has become the leader of a revolution of a kind. He left the LDP in 1993 and started a new party, which, after merging with other groups, finally broke the LDP's virtual monopoly on power in 2009. The party's goals — a more equal partnership with the U.S., more power to elected politicians, more transparency — are all commendable. But even if they are not swiftly and entirely achieved, Hatoyama has helped change his country from a de facto one-party state into a functioning democracy. That is reason enough for celebration.

P 4586 An independent College of Social Work

BASW

An overwhelming 89% of social workers have voted to take control of their own profession by voting 'yes' in a referendum on establishing an independent College of Social Work.

Members of the British Association of Social Workers (BASW) used a formal ballot to send a clear message that social workers across the UK want a College that is powerful, effective and is led by and accountable to the profession.

More than 5,000 social workers took part in the poll, with 4,543 voting 'yes' to establishing a College that is effective and sustainable and led by social workers for social workers.
