From De-industrialization to the future of industries

Europe in the Global Economy

Date: Nov 28 - Topic: Global Economics & Governance

Deindustrialization is a major issue for all industrialized countries, in Europe and in America. This is also the case for Japan and Korea, two countries that have experienced an economic development based on the growth of manufacturing industries and that are particularly concerned by the rise of China in the international division of labor.

The purpose of this workshop is twofold. First, it revisits the link between deindustrialization and globalization, which is often blamed as a cause of deindustrialization, without much empirical evidence. Second, it investigates the emergence of new industries as a mean to stabilize the above trend or event to reverse it. The issues are then how to promote it and how governments can help the process.

The originality of this event is that papers that will be presented are dealing with German, French but also Japanese and Korean cases that are not well not known in Europe.

This event concludes a 3-year research program on the issues of industries coordinated by the Fondation France-Japon de EHESS (Ecole des hautes études en sciences sociales, Paris) that gave birth to various publications and debates.

The capital tax cut debate

How much do workers gain from a capital gains tax cut? CEA chairman Hasset claims the tax cut will cause average household labour income to increase by between $4000 and $9000. Several commentators note this implies that more than 100% of the incidence of the tax is on labour. This question has triggered a heated discussion in the economic blogosphere, which we review here.

Phillips vs. Pass-through, or the changing ECB understanding of inflation

This blog post looks at how the approach of the ECB to inflation has changed over the years. It shows the ECB has moved, over the years, from a small towards a large country approach, giving more weight to the improving employment conditions than to the appreciating exchange rate in deciding its monetary policy moves.

Revision of the Posted Workers Directive misses the point

The Commission’s proposed revision of the Posted Workers Directive has been approved by the European Parliament’s Employment Committee, which welcomes the arrival of “equal pay for equal work”. But the revision will have little impact, and was largely unnecessary. Instead we should focus on the fight against bogus self-employment, social security fraud and undeclared work.

Employment in Europe and the US: the EU’s remarkable strength

The common narrative that the US labour market outperforms the EU is not as trustworthy as overall unemployment figures imply. There is a complex interaction between job creation, labour force participation and unemployment. Jobseekers leaving the labour market altogether was an important factor behind the reduction in US unemployment, while Europe’s job growth has been accompanied by increased labour force participation.

Hong Kong should add the euro to its dollar peg

Volatility offers an opportunity for the territory to rethink its strategy. With the economy now more synchronised with China than ever before, the dollar peg may no longer provide an accurate reflection of the real value of the Hong Kong dollar.
