PM urges Finns to accept austerity in rare TV appeal

Finland’s centrist Prime Minister Juha Sipila urged Finns to accept the government’s harsh austerity measures in a rare televised address to the nation on Wednesday. “The Finnish state has contracted debt at a rate of almost a million euros ($1.13 million) per hour for seven years, day and night, every day of the week. Sipila’s speech came a week after his pro-austerity, centre-right coalition government announced a series of tough austerity measures to revive the eurozone member’s slumping economy after three years of recession.
