How would the alternatives to the neoclassical economic theory be applied today in countries such as Portugal, Spain or Greece?

Alternatives to the neoclassical economic theory such as Post Keynesian economics, Straffian economics, Complexity theory or the Marxian school, what do they have to say about these countries?
Im hoping to hear some pratical hypothesis at a macro level.
Thanks

  • Nov 25 2013: I am not sure what you want However, Things were better for those three countries before someone started applying new theories to real people. I thought Spain and Portugal were doing okay. Greece will be Greece but that worked okay for them. When a model doesn't work it's been falsified so try something new. Were the old ways so bad as to justify the current problems. The English thought the Euro was a bad idea. They were right.
