Inclusive growth and inequality in Europe

Many Europeans have felt the effects of inequality due to the economic and financial crisis and stagnation. How can inequalities be tackled and which policies can support inclusive growth?

By: Date: November 8, 2016 Topic: European Macroeconomics & Governance

In this episode of The Sound of Economics we examine the issue of inclusive growth and inequality in Europe.

We asked Zsolt Darvas, Senior Fellow at Bruegel, to explain us how is it possible to define and measure inclusive growth.

We spoke to Jana Hainsworth, President of the Social Platform, about the negative effects of social inequalities.

We also asked her which new policies should be implemented to support inclusive growth. Luca Visentini, Secretary General of the European Trade Unions Confederation, and Markus J. Beyrer, Director General at Business Europe, also shared their opinion.

Finally, Zsolt Darvas highlighted the key policy recommendations from the Bruegel Blueprint “An Anatomy of inclusive growth”.

Speakers

Zsolt Darvas, Senior Fellow, Bruegel

Jana Hainsworth, President, Social Platform

Luca Visentini, Secretary General, European Trade Union Confederation

Markus J. Beyrer, Director General, BusinessEurope

Policymakers will not accept forceful decarbonisation policies if they lead to visibly increasing inequality within their societies. The distributive effects of climate policies need to be addressed. This report provides a selective review of recent academic literature and experience on the distributional effects of climate policies.
