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 Radical Markets: Uprooting Capitalism and Democracy for a Just Society
Book Presentation by Glen Weyl

Many blame today's economic inequality, stagnation, and political instability on the free market. The solution is to rein in the market, right? Radical Markets turns this thinking on its head. It reveals bold new ways to organize markets for the good of everyone. It shows how the emancipatory force of genuinely open, free, and competitive markets can lead to greater equality, prosperity, and cooperation. Eric Posner and Glen Weyl demonstrate why private property is inherently monopolistic, show how the principle of one person, one vote inhibits democracy, and argue that every citizen of a host country should benefit from immigration―not just migrants and their capitalist employers. They propose leveraging antitrust laws to liberate markets from the grip of institutional investors and creating a data labor movement to force digital monopolies to compensate people for their electronic data. Only by radically expanding the scope of markets can we reduce inequality, restore robust economic growth, and resolve political conflicts. But to do that, we must replace our most sacred institutions with truly free and open competition―Radical Markets shows how.

    Berlin Lunchtime Meeting China's economic policy future: state capitalism or strengthened market economy?

    The DIW Berlin and the OECD Berlin Centre cordially invite you to the Berlin Lunchtime Meeting.

    In China the strengthening of market mechanisms hoped for by western businesses is making only slow progress. Instead the state and the Communist Party are expanding their influence in the economy. This has consequences for China's economic policy. In the past decades this has led to growing overcapacities and indebtedness. Now China is aiming at global technological leadership. Is this approach a threat to the liberal order of the global economy?

    The event language will be English.

    The lecture starts at 13:00 p.m.

    We look forward to your participation, and request that you register at

    DIW Europe Lecture The Populist Turn in American Politics: Implications for Europe

    The DIW Europe Lecture is a lecture series by leading policy-makers and academics on the future of Europe. The series aims at fostering and informing the debate on key European policy issues, and at bringing this debate to the heart of Germany's policy-making in Berlin. 

    This lecture will trace the populist turn in American politics, and identify instances and conditions under which mainstream politicians and parties succeeded and failed in stemming the populist tide.

    Barry Eichengreen is George C. Pardee and Helen N. Pardee Professor of Economics and Political Science at the University of California at Berkeley, Research Associate of the National Bureau of Economic Research and Research Fellow of the Centre for Economic Policy Research.

    Veranstaltung InfraTrain Autumn School 2016 - Efficiency Analysis of Infrastructure Companies

    This course focuses on recent advances in (semi)parametric measurement of productivity and efficiency in production. The methodological discussion includes cross-section and panel data approaches as well as different ways of incorporating determinants of production and inefficiency. The methods are applied to firm level data of public and private infrastructure companies, which are frequently subject to regulatory oversight and benchmarking. Within the empirical analysis of these companies, special attention will be put on the differences in ownership and governance, firms’ capital structure, and their investment behavior.

    Veranstaltung Flucht nach Deutschland
    Von der humanitären Katastrophe zur wirtschaftlichen Chance?

    Was muss geschehen, um anerkannten Flüchtlingen und geduldeten Zuwanderern in Deutschland schneller Zugang zu Bildung, Arbeit, Wohnungen und gesellschaftlichen Aktivitäten zu ermöglichen? Wie soll die Politik auf Bundes-, Landes-, und kommunaler Ebene agieren? Wie nutzt die Wirtschaft die Chancen und wie begegnet sie den Herausforderungen durch die hohe Zahl potenzieller neuer Arbeitskräfte? Führt die zunehmende Konkurrenz auf den Arbeits- und Wohnungsmärkten zu gesellschaftlichem Unfrieden und wie können Konflikte gelöst werden? Welche Zusatzbelastungen kommen auf die öffentlichen Haushalte und die Sozialversicherungen zu und wie sollen sie finanziert werden? Unter welchen Voraussetzungen kann die aktuelle Flüchtlingskrise längerfristig zur Bewältigung der demografischen Probleme Deutschlands beitragen?
