While all EU economies witnessed a sharp decline in output during the financial crisis, the peripheral EU countries were particularly
hard hit. This is surprising, given their sound macroeconomic performance prior to the crisis. It became obvious that imbalances
had been building up underneath a seemingly tranquil macroeconomic surface. We argue that the underlying mechanisms are mirrored
by productivity developments in a tradable-non-tradable framework. Countries that were severely affected not only exhibited
low productivity growth in tradables (e.g., manufacturing), but also experienced a sharp increase in the production of non-tradables
(e.g., real estate) before the crisis.

We develop and calibrate an analytical growth model in the neo-Kaleckian tradition with an endogenous wealth distribution
and differential returns to wealth between workers and capitalists. We show that a long-run equilibrium allows for non-zero
wealth owned by workers, even as the model contains the "triumph of the rentier" predicted by Piketty's r > g as a special
case. The model's calibration to ten European countries shows that the distribution of wealth is likely to become more unequal
in all cases, barring political countermeasures.

This paper examines whether PageRank algorithms are a valid instrument for the analysis of technical progress in specific
technological fields by means of patent citation data. It provides evidence for patent data in biotechnology. Recent literature
has been critical with regard to the use of PageRank for the analysis of scientific citation networks. The results reported
in this paper indicate, however, that with some minor adaptations and careful interpretation of the results the algorithm
can be used to capture some important stylised facts of technical progress and the importance of single patents relatively
well especially if compared to indicators based on direct inward citations only.
