"Rewriting the Rules of the European Economy"

Video: Nobel Laureate Joseph Stiglitz Presents New Report in Vienna
In his latest publication "Rewriting the Rules of the European Economy", US economist and Nobel Laureate Joseph Stiglitz calls for a fundamental change in European economic policy. On 22 May, Stiglitz, together with WIFO Deputy Director and co-author Margit Schratzenstaller, presented the core theses of the report at the Vienna University of Economics and Business Administration. On the same day, the two published a joint op-ed in the daily newspaper "Der Standard".

The event was hosted by the Foundation for European Progressive Studies (FEPS) and the Renner Institute. In his recent report for FEPS, Joseph Stiglitz outlines a new set of rules for economic, political, and social governance in Europe that would help to recast a prosperous and equitable EU marked by peace and solidarity within the context of globalization. To improve economic performance and create shared prosperity, the rules of the European economy – broadly understood the fundamental policies governing the EU – must be rewritten.
