After the first meeting of the working group he chaired, Mäkinen estimates that in addition to economic losses, the interest rate crisis will cause huge losses and damage to people's well-being.
- If no effort is made to remedy them, the consequences will be fatal for society's economic and human capacity. Identifying and addressing welfare losses is crucial in reconstruction, Mäkinen said according to the press release.
