The European Recovery Fund: An Effective Policy Measure to Deal with Covid-19 Consequences?

With Clemens Fuest (ifo Institute) and Antonia Díaz (Universidad Carlos III de Madrid), Wednesday, 20 May, 15:30-17:00, Online Event

(PresseBox) ( München, )
The economic crisis caused by Covid-19 is on course to become more serious than the 2008 financial crisis. Eurozone member states face several challenges in order to stabilize the economy, not least the short-term financial aid required during the shutdown and the subsequent support needed to get the economy back on its feet. The Eurozone has little room for manoeuvre with the limitations of monetary policy and high levels of national debt. It’s crucial to ensure that added value is created by policy at a European level, with a robust infrastructure to ensure no member state is left behind.

In the first of our series of Policy Research Live online debates, EconPol Europe welcomes our speaker Clemens Fuest (ifo Institute) and network member Antonia Díaz (Universidad Carlos III de Madrid) to discuss the policy options available for the Eurozone and ask: is a European Recovery Fund an effective policy measure to deal with Covid-19 consequences?

You can take part in the event by registering your details. You will be sent a meeting code and password to participate as an observer, and will be able to submit questions during the discussion using the Q&A function in Zoom (download the app at https://zoom.us/download).
