Lisbon Council Lecture on Economic Growth in the European Union
|Date:||16 October 2013|
|Location:||Brussels, Belgium, 11:00 - 12:00|
16 October, 2013 - Résidence Palace, 155 rue de la Loi, 1040 Brussels
Leszek Balcerowicz – author of Polish structural reforms which delivered the longest, most sustained period of economic growth in modern European history – visits Brussels to deliver The 2013 Ludwig Erhard Lecture and launch Economic Growth in the European Union, a new policy brief based on comprehensive comparative analyses of European growth patterns. The study is part of the Growth and Competitiveness Initiative, a multi-year research project, which will be chaired by Prof. Balcerowicz and spearheaded by the Lisbon Council.
The study examines the current state of the European economy and makes concrete proposals – for better monetary policy, fiscal strategy, structural reform and budget consolidation. How can we get Europe moving again? What are the policies that worked for successful countries? What are the pitfalls and mistakes embedded in current policy? And how can we move from a broad consensus that growth is necessary to a set of policies that can actually deliver?
