He sees "collection voracity" in the economic proposals of the Government
BARCELONA, 19 Mar. (EUROPA PRESS) -
The president of the Chamber of Spain, José Luis Bonet, has lamented the lack of consensus with employers in the pension reform approved this week by the Council of Ministers: "Companies cannot be separated."
In statements to Europa Press, he recalled that Spain has progressed with a social market economy system "based on companies as a whole", including employers and workers.
Bonet has assured that "the class struggle is from the 19th century" and that Spain has done well due to the understanding between employers and workers.
"Each one claims his own, it is true, but don't come to me now with the subject of Marx's class struggle, which in the 19th century made sense," he added.
He has assured that "the new pension system is going to cause inflation" and has shown his doubts that the Government has calculated this aspect.
Bonet has been critical of the "collection voracity" that he has assured that the Government has in its economic proposals.
He has lamented that the Executive allows the income of citizens to erode based on not deflating the increase in wages to compensate for inflation in personal income tax: "He is confiscating people."
Asked about the new rise in interest rates to 3.5%, he replied that companies will have to adapt and stressed that the Spanish banking system "is healthy and has enviable liquidity and solvency ratios".
