The Euroframe group of research institutes (CASE, CPB, DIW, ESRI, ETLA, IfW, NIESR, OFCE, PROMETEIA, WIFO) held its 16th annual Conference on Economic Policy Issues in the European Union in Dublin on 7 June 2019. The aim of this conference is to bring together academics and policy-oriented economists by providing a forum for debate on economic policy issues relevant in the European context. The 16th Conference will focus on the greater cohesion across Europe in monetary, fiscal and macroprudential policy while set against an increasingly fractured and polarised international (trade) environment. In particular, the conference will address challenges concerning monetary policy normalisation and greater policy cohesion in the fiscal and macroprudential policy areas. It will also address the implications of disruptions to trade due to Brexit and increased global tensions between the USA and China.

We study the classic static optimal non-linear income taxation problem (Mirrlees, 1971). Diamond (1998) and Saez (2001) derive expressions for the optimal taxes that are widely used in public finance. Yet, even in the simplest cases, those do not provide closed-form solutions or a full characterisation for the optimal income tax. The solution is a coupled system of differential equations and has relatively few known characteristics. We derive a new characterisation of the optimum by showing that it satisfies what we call a "fairness principle": taxes at any given level are the average of nearby taxes. This is joint work with Aleh Tsyvinski (Yale).

The lecture analyses the appropriate role of capital taxation in advanced economies by synthesising the research on optimal capital taxation. To highlight the redistributive role of capital taxation, robust correlations between labour income, wealth and capital income are documented and new evidence on the wealth holdings of the wealthiest is presented. Distortionary effects of capital taxation are analysed and critical issues in its practical implementation are discussed. The overall conclusion is that there are good reasons to tax capital and that Nordic "dual" income taxation could be a constructive way to strike a balance between an optimal and administratively feasible tax system.

FEPS, the Renner Institute, the WU and WIFO present the Report on "Rewriting the Rules of the European Economy" at the Vienna University of Economics and Business with the special participation of Nobel laureate Joseph Stiglitz. In this report, 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 globalisation. 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.

Große interne Lohndisparitäten zwischen Städten sind weltweit anzutreffen. Auf der Basis von Daten für Deutschland identifiziert der Vortrag als einen zentralen Treiber dieser Entwicklung "Assortative Matching" hochqualifizierter Arbeitskräfte und Unternehmen in großen Städten. Eine vielversprechende Strategie zur Verringerung von räumlichen Lohndisparitäten ist die Verbesserung von Matching in kleinen Städten.

Tourists move by definition from the place of residence to the destination region, as well as between destinations, and between attractions within the same destination. These phenomena present several issues which are related both to the collection of information and to the analysis of complex information such as the ones related with tourist itineraries. An improved understanding of tourist mobility can assist DMOs to fully capture the benefit of cooperative marketing strategies between destinations and among tourism services within the same destination. Furthermore, increased knowledge regarding the determinants of tourist mobility can result in a more focused marketing of tourism products and services. In this lecture, traditional survey methods and the potential coming from the use of new technologies for the analysis of tourist mobility, such as GPS devices are discussed along with their merits and pitfalls. Special attention will be given to the implementation of sampling procedure, and Time Location Sampling is introduced as a potential solution in surveying mobile populations. From several case studies we can describe empirically the main problems arising in the analysis of tourist mobility and propose some potential solutions for the collection and analysis of data on tourist mobility at different temporal and territorial scales.

FairTax is a cross-disciplinary four-year research project, aiming to produce recommendations on how fair and sustainable taxation and social policy reforms can increase the economic stability of EU member states. How can sustainable taxation and social policy reforms promote economic equality and security, enhance coordination and harmonisation of tax, enhance social inclusion, environmental sustainability, increase tax compliance, and expand the EU's own-source revenue bases? Under the coordination of Umeå University (Sweden), policy fiscal experts from ten universities in six EU countries and two non-EU countries (Brazil and Norway) contribute to FairTax Research.
