The Cost of Living in a Politically Fragmented Europe

The cost of living crisis in Europe has been one of the most pressing concerns since 2021. Several measures by the national governments and the EU have failed to provide relief to the citizens. The main cause behind it is the divided approach of the political parties to handle the situation. Right wing parties favour competitiveness while the left argue for investment in public enterprises. For this economic crisis to be effectively dealt with, parties need to rise from their differences and work as a union to lift its people from economic and social insecurities.
