    Dutch child psychologist Denise Dulcic cooks in a home for elderly people in Amsterdam April 3, 2012. Dulcic has suffered first-hand the economic downturn and fiscal squeeze that is gripping the Netherlands and says she is "just surviving". When the government cut back on subsidies for the disabled in a package of austerity measures intended to bring a bloated budget deficit under control, Dulcic's contract working with disabled youths at a secondary school was not renewed.
