Niño Becerra gives his opinion on the time change in ‘Espejo Público’: “It makes no sense to do it”

During the morning program on Antena 3, “Espejo Público”, which is being presented by Lorena García during the Easter holidays, there has been a debate about the relevance of the time change that will take place this weekend. The Economist Santiago Niño Becerra has gone live to talk about the origin of the change and explain why, in his opinion, “it no longer makes sense”.

“It must be taken into account that this time change was established in 1973 as a result of the such a brutal increase in the price of oil throughout the 70s. At that time it was correct, from an economic point of view,” he began by saying, later adding that at the time there were also detractors to change, specifically doctors: “Doctors have been, many of them, against this”He said.

Comparing energy costs between today and half a century ago, Niño Becerra comes to the conclusion that this is a measure that no longer makes sense: “Taking into account that the productivity of the energy unit has improved enormously and, on the other hand, , in proportion, in real terms, of the price of fuel and per kilowatt has also fallen, now It makes practically no sense to make this time change

Furthermore, Niño Becerra points out that the supposed individual economic savings derived from the time change is minimal, barely 4.8 euros in six months per Spanish household. “Come on, nothing. I don’t know if it’s worth it because of the disruption it entails,” the collaborators pointed out from the discussion table on the set.

Despite the arguments presented, the measurement of the time change will remain in force in the European Union at least until 2026, at which time it was considered to adopt only one of the two schedules. This proposal seems much more coherent for Santiago Niño Becerra, who also highlighted the fact that “Spain is one hour ahead with respect to the meridian that corresponds to it due to the geographical location”, so with this time change “it will be two hours ahead with respect to the time zone that corresponds to it”, he explained.
