European competitiveness: Exploiting potential for sustainable growth

Hubertus Bardt / Sandra Parthie / Christian Rusche

The EU's position as a major global economic power is increasingly under threat. On the one hand, this is a consequence of the crises that the EU has faced in the last two decades. In particular, these include the global financial crisis (2007-2009), the euro crisis (2010-2012), the refugee crisis (2015-2016), Brexit (2016-2020), the Corona pandemic since 2020 and the war in Ukraine from 2022.

Protectionism is a dead-end street for Europe, climate neutrality is the key

Disruption, transition, transformation, structural change – Europeans today face several megatrends – climate change and the need to decarbonise our economies; digitalisation and the need to re-think workplace organisation; de-globalisation and the need to remain economically relevant, writes Sandra Parthie, Head of the IW Brussels Office.

Livestream debate: Rising inflation – is it here to stay?

The recent surge in inflation has sparked a sometimes polarizing debate among central bankers, analysts, policymakers and the wider public. In July 2021, the ECB changed its inflation objective to a symmetric 2% target over the medium term. But euro area inflation has surged to 5% in December.

EU’s Economy after Corona: How can recovery and structural change succeed?

With „NextGenerationEU”, the EU provides comprehensive grants and loans for public investments and reforms in its Member States. At least 37% of the overall amount should be spend on forward-looking investments and structural reforms in favour of climate protection, while 20% shall go towards the digital transformation. The Member States have submitted their national recovery plans, and the first funds have been disbursed. It is the biggest EU economic stimulus package ever. The challenge now lies in the execution.

livestream debate (via Zoom): Corporate finance – How to steer the transformation after the Covid crisis?

While the precise impact varies from sector to sector, the Coronavirus generally has left a strong mark on the European economy. A broad policy response has alleviated the repercussions on European SMEs and corporates, albeit to a limited extent. Importantly, policymakers have already phased out some temporary support measures and will likely continue to do so in the near to medium term.

Online-Roundtable: WTO Reform: New Leadership, New Hope?

The need for reform within the WTO goes without saying. From criticism concerning its undemocratic decision making and de facto suspension of the dispute settlement procedure to its inability to deal with imbalances stemming from state subsidies or market access – there are many things that need fixing.
