Beyond Economic Governance and Financing the Real Economy

15-02-2011

These two briefing papers mark the end of series of briefing papers supporting the meetings the Special Committee on the Financial, Economic and Social Crisis (CRIS) held in January and February 2011. In preparation for the discussions on the Committee's draft final report these meetings dealt with key questions of the crisis. The first briefing deals with the different ways of decision-making in the area of European Economic Governance; where six proposals are currently under discussion while economic governance and relative power in the EU are both in a state of flux. The second paper examines the financing of the real economy, in particular problems and policy options as regards investments that are growth-enhancing, generate employment and improve the sustainability of the economy.
