Veranstaltung Growing United Upgrading Europe´s Convergence Machine

by Arup Banerji, Regional Director for the European Union countries, The World Bank Group

and Christian Bodewig, Program Leader for Inclusive Growth, The World Bank Group

Since its foundation more than 60 years ago, the European Union (EU) has become the modern world’s greatest “convergence machine,” propelling poorer, and newer, member states to become high-income economies, and delivering to its citizens some of the highest living standards and lowest levels of income inequality in the world. Today, however, Europeans are increasingly realizing that convergence is by no means automatic. Since the 1990s, population inequality has increased in many parts of the EU as low-income Europeans fall back on the labor market. Also the productivity gap between the southern and northern member states has widened since the early 2000s. The EU is growing, but Europeans "are not growing together". But why? Growing United argues that technological change, by revolutionizing product and labor markets, is slowing down the old convergence machine: technology offers ever-richer opportunities for well-skilled workers and frontier firms, while low-skilled workers and less productive firms risk falling behind. As a result, countries and regions that provide fewer opportunities for people to build relevant skills and a less supportive environment for firms to thrive are losing ground. This calls for upgrading Europe’s convergence machine, to seize the benefits of technological change for all Europeans. Growing United argues that the convergence machine, version 2.0, should focus on the convergence of opportunities for people and firms across the Union. It should support the capabilities of people (skills) and firms (innovation), and provide a level playing field for people and firms through “flexicure” labor markets and an enabling business environment.

Panel discussion with:
Arup Banerji, Regional Director for the European Union countries for the World Bank Group. Until January 2016, he was the Senior Director and Head of the Social Protection and Labor Global Practice at the World Bank Group, and concurrently the Senior Director for the Jobs Group, overseeing the World Bank’s operations, strategy and knowledge work on employment and labor markets, social safety nets, and social insurance/pensions issues. He is a research fellow at the Institute for Labour Economics (IZA) in Bonn, Germany, and an invited member of three of the World Economic Forum’s Global Agenda Councils—on Youth Unemployment, on Inclusive Growth and on India.

Marcel Fratzscher, President of DIW Berlin. He is Professor of Macroeconomics and Finance at Humboldt-University Berlin, and Chair of the German government expert committee on "Strenghtening investment in Germany". Moreover, he is member of the advisory board of the German development, non-profit Deutsche Welthungerhilfe and member of the supervisory board of the Hertie School of Governance.

Veranstaltung Bretton Woods, Brussels, and Beyond: Redesigning the Institutions of Europe

Economists have discussed extensively what to do to reform the European Project and how, but have been broadly silent on who and when. Which institutions and rules are needed, and when? This eBook shows that such institutional questions, although seldomly raised, are of fundamental importance for the future of European integration.

    Veranstaltung The New Germans

    Who and what is Germany in 2018? Among the things the country is known for are its consensus-based politics, its conservative social values, its egalitarian social-market economy, its collaborative and incrementalist firms and, on the international stage, its economic assertiveness combined with military reticence. Now, as Angela Merkel's (probably) final term as chancellor gets going after an unprecedented five months of coalition talks, all of those familiar traits are under pressure or in flux. 

    The arrival of hundreds of thousands of immigrants is accelerating the transformation of a once comparatively homogeneous nation into an Einwanderungsland or "immigration country". Politics is more heated and more fragmented than before. Debates rage about meaning of Heimat, or homeland, about who belongs and who does not. New social divides are opening up. Germany's main industries, particularly the automotive sector, remain world-class but face an intense period of disruption. Meanwhile the refugee crisis and the recent elections of Donald Trump and Emmanuel Macron all, in different ways, challenge Berlin's traditional foreign policy doctrines and demand more of the country on the world stage. 

    In a new Special Report for The Economist, Jeremy Cliffe documents "the new Germans", a nation more open, plural and fragmented than before. The changes roiling Europe's largest economy, he argues, will force it to question established habits.

    Veranstaltung Ordoliberalismus vs angelsächsisch-lateinischer Pragmatismus?

    Wirtschaftspolitische Kooperation wird erschwert, wenn sich die Sichten auf die Welt deutlich voneinander unterscheiden, gar diametral entgegenstehen. Das wird seit langem in den Debatten der G20 deutlich, in denen es oft Einschätzungsunterschiede über die angemessene Politik zwischen einer amerikanisch (pragmatischen) und einer (auf Prinzipien insistierenden) deutschen Position gibt. In einer Währungsunion sind derartige Divergenzen besonders problematisch, in der europäischen allerdings die Regel. Das haben die Diskussionen um die Lehren, die aus der Finanz- und Eurokrise zu ziehen sind, wieder eindrücklich belegt. Deutsche Positionen, oft mit Rückgriff auf (international wenig bekannte) ordnungspolitische Prinzipien, stehen regelmäßig im Konflikt mit pragmatischen Konzepten, die in der EWU vor allem von Frankreich vertreten werden. Die Konflikte betreffen unter anderem die gebotene Vervollständigung der Architektur der Währungsunion, die angemessene Bankpolitik (Einlagensicherung, Abwicklung) ebenso wie den Umgang mit Leistungsbilanzsalden innerhalb der Eurozone. Aktuell stehen sie natürlich auch im Mittelpunkt der unterschiedlichen Beiträge zur Debatte um die Zukunft der EWU. Kann es zur  Verständigung kommen, wird es eine Schnittmenge der Positionen geben? Die Antwort auf diese Fragen ist wesentlich für die Robustheit der Europäischen Währungsunion.

    SOEP Brown Bag Seminar Tax and Transfer Policies and the Female Labor Supply in the EU

    This study measures the effect of tax-benefit policies on female labor supply based on a broad sample of 26 European countries in 2005-2010. The tax-benefit microsimulation model EUROMOD is used to calculate a measure of work incentives at the extensive margin - the participation tax rate, which is then used as the main explanatory variable in a female employment equation. This allows me to deal with the endogeneity of income in a new way by using a simulated instrumental variable based on a fixed EU-wide sample of women. Results suggest that a 10 percentage point increase in the participation tax rate decreases the female employment probability by 2 percentage points. The effect is higher for single mothers, for women in the middle of the skills distribution, and in countries that have lower rates of female employment.

    Veranstaltung Investment Weakness in the Euro Area and the Need for Public Investment - The IMF Perspective

    Davide Furceri | IMF Research Department
    Bergljot Barkbu | Deputy Representative, IMF Europe Office in Paris and Brussels

    As highlighted in the IMF's article IV consultation report for the euro area, investment across the euro area remains below its pre crisis level. Its performance has been weaker than in most previous recessions and financial crises. The IMF analysis shows that much of this weakness can be explained by output dynamics, but that since the sovereign debt crisis, a high cost of capital, financial constraints, corporate leverage, and uncertainty have further held back investment in parts of the euro area.

    Veranstaltung Europe's Reluctant Hegemon

    On June 15, 2013, the international affairs magazine The Economist will publish a Germany Special Report, analyzing Germany's economy, politics, and external image. In a remarkably short space of time, the country written off as the "sick man of Europe" only a decade ago has become the continent's powerhouse. Yet, as important as Germany is, Europe and the rest of the world have so little understanding of the country. In southern Europe, it is denounced as a selfish tyrant pushing through destructive austerity measures. Americans complain about Germany's lack of willingness to assume a stronger leadership role. Zanny Minton Beddoes is convinced that "Europe's reluctant hegemonic power" must now take more control as the continent's politically and economically dominant country. Europe's future depends on it.

    What will Germany's unwillingness to think and lead strategically mean for the future of Europe and the euro? To what extent does Germany's concept of leadership, deeply ambivalent for historical reasons, shape its vision of Europe and why is this inadequate and incomplete? What do Europe and the US expect from Germany? How is German Chancellor Angela Merkel's policy of caution perceived in other countries? How do the energy transition and demographic change in Germany, in particular, impact on its own economy and its leading role in Europe?

    Presentation: Zanny Minton Beddoes, The Economist
    As The Economist's Economics Editor in Washington, Zanny Minton Beddoes has been responsible for the magazine's global economics coverage since 2007. Managing a team of writers around the world, she reports on international financial matters, including the enlargement of the European Union, the future of the International Monetary Fund, and economic reforms in emerging economies.

    Chair: Prof. Marcel Fratzscher, Ph.D., DIW Berlin
    Marcel Fratzscher is President of DIW Berlin, one of the leading economic research institutes and think tanks in Europe, and Professor of Macroeconomics and Finance at Humboldt-University Berlin. His prior professional experience includes work as Head of the International Policy Analysis at the European Central Bank (ECB); the Peterson Institute for International Economics; the Ministry of Finance of Indonesia for the Harvard Institute for International Development (HIID); the Asian Development Bank and the World Bank

    Konferenz 10th Euroframe Conference on Economic Policy Issues in the European Union
    Towards a better governance in the EU?

    Organised by the EUROFRAME group of Research Institutes.
    Venue: Warsaw, Poland

    The EUROFRAME group of research institutes (CASE, CPB, DIW, ESRI, ETLA, IfW, NIESR, OFCE, PROMETEIA, WIFO) will hold its tenth annual Conference on Economic Policy Issues in the European Union in Warsaw on 24 May 2013. The aim of the conference is to provide an economic forum for debate on economic policy issues relevant in the European context.

    The Conference will focus on how to improve European governance in the broadest possible sense (stability mechanisms, macroeconomic imbalances, financial safety net, etc.). Contributions should address issues related to: How to reform the European institutional framework, with a view to bring euro area countries out of the crisis and pave the way for better growth in the EU? What is the risk of multispeed EU as a permanent feature of European integration? What assessment can be made of the recent strengthening of the fiscal framework (TSCG and related measures) and of European solidarity (ESM)? What assessment can be made of monetary policy action and credit developments in EU countries since the beginning of the crisis? How to build a financial architecture for Europe? What about the projects of a banking union and of new banking and financial regulations? Is there still a risk of a euro-area break-up?

    Berlin Lunchtime Meeting Faire Besteuerung Multinationaler Unternehmen - Neue Initiativen internationaler Steuerpolitik

    Achim Pross, Ph.D.
    Kommentar:
    Martin Kreienbaum
    Moderation: 
    Heino v. Meyer

    Die internationalen Grundlagen der Unternehmensbesteuerung haben nicht mit dem Wandel der globalen Geschäftspraktiken Schritt gehalten. Viele multinationale Unternehmen nutzen Lücken in der aktuellen Gesetzgebung, um ihre Gewinne zu verlagern und ihre Steuerzahlungen so gering wie möglich zu halten. Das hat gravierende Folgen für die Einnahmen der Staaten, in denen diese Unternehmen agieren. Die G20 haben die OECD damit beauftragt, einen Bericht über das Phänomen der Gewinnverlagerung und der damit verbundenen Aushöhlung der Steuerbemessungsgrundlagen zu verfassen.  

    Achim Pross, Ph.D., ist Leiter der Abteilung für internationale Zusammenarbeit und Steuerverwaltung am Zentrum für Steuerpolitik und Steuerverwaltung der OECD.

    Martin Kreienbaum

    Berlin Lunchtime Meeting Golden Growth: Restoring the Lustre of the European Economic Model

    Speakers: 
    Indermit Gill,  Chief Economist of the Europe and Central Asia Region of the World Bank, and
    Martin Raiser,  World Bank's Country Director for Turkey

    Chair:

    Dr. Ferdinand Fichtner, Head of the Department Forecasting and Economic Policy, DIW Berlin

    The report documents the impressive achievements of the European growth model over the last 50 years. Accounting for the stresses it is experiencing and assessing the longer-term challenges that Europe will face, the report then evaluates the six principal components of the model: Trade, Finance, Enterprise, Innovation, Labor, and Government. It finds that the European growth model has been a powerful engine for economic convergence, helping developing countries in Europe catch up to their richer neighbors and become high-income economies. But recent developments inside and outside of Europe necessitate change. The report proposes the adjustments needed to make trade and finance work even better, to encourage enterprise and innovation in parts of Europe which have begun to lag, and address shortcomings in the functioning of labor markets and governments. The changes proposed would restart the European convergence machine, make Europe's enterprises competitive, and help Europeans afford the highest standards of living in the world.
