As prime minister of an interim cabinet, he was widely seen as the only one who could solve the financial problems of the country: ‘Jelle sorts it out’.All this time, his policies as minister were guided by an overarching vision on the relationship between government and the market, economic freedom and planning. Influenced by the harsh realities of politics, the Keynesian accents slowly faded from his thinking.
