Hearings of the Commissioners-designate: Paolo Gentiloni - Economy

26-09-2019

This briefing is one in a set looking at the Commissioners-designate and their portfolios as put forward by Commission President-elect Ursula von der Leyen. Each candidate faces a three-hour public hearing, organised by one or more parliamentary committees. After that process, those committees will judge the candidates' suitability for the role based on 'their general competence, European commitment and personal independence', as well as their 'knowledge of their prospective portfolio and their communication ...

This briefing is one in a set looking at the Commissioners-designate and their portfolios as put forward by Commission President-elect Ursula von der Leyen. Each candidate faces a three-hour public hearing, organised by one or more parliamentary committees. After that process, those committees will judge the candidates' suitability for the role based on 'their general competence, European commitment and personal independence', as well as their 'knowledge of their prospective portfolio and their communication skills'. At the end of the hearings process, Parliament votes on the proposed Commission as a bloc, and under the Treaties may only reject the entire College of Commissioners, rather than individual candidates. The Briefing provides an overview of key issues in the portfolio areas, as well as Parliament's activity in the last term in that field. It also includes a brief introduction to the candidate.

Amending social security coordination

13-10-2017

Approximately 14 million EU residents (mobile workers, unemployed and economically inactive citizens) are not living in their home country. In order to grant them the social and health benefits to which they are entitled, coordination between the social security systems of the Member States is necessary. However, the current Regulations (EC) No 883/2004 and (EC) No 987/2009 no longer reflect the changing national social security systems and the case law of the European Court of Justice.

Approximately 14 million EU residents (mobile workers, unemployed and economically inactive citizens) are not living in their home country. In order to grant them the social and health benefits to which they are entitled, coordination between the social security systems of the Member States is necessary. However, the current Regulations (EC) No 883/2004 and (EC) No 987/2009 no longer reflect the changing national social security systems and the case law of the European Court of Justice. The European Commission’s December 2016 proposal aims to establish a coherent regime for the coordination of long-term care benefits, and to clarify the access of economically inactive citizens to social benefits. It proposes new arrangements for the coordination of unemployment benefits in order to enhance job-seeking, and provisions for the coordination of family benefits, such as parental leave allowances. The proposal also seeks to strengthen administrative rules on social security coordination for posted workers. However, it does not intend to change existing rules on the export of child benefits, despite demands from several stakeholders. Second edition. The ‘EU Legislation in Progress’ briefings are updated at key stages throughout the legislative procedure. Please note this document has been designed for on-line viewing.

Coordination of social security systems

15-06-2017

Generally, the IA seems to provide a robust basis on which to change the current EU framework of social security coordination. A number of comprehensive external studies substantiates the IA. It appears that the European Commission was open about data limitations and key assumptions. Various stakeholder consultations were conducted, including two public online consultations. The Commission proved flexible and responsive in that it developed two options in direct response to feedback from the Administrative ...

Generally, the IA seems to provide a robust basis on which to change the current EU framework of social security coordination. A number of comprehensive external studies substantiates the IA. It appears that the European Commission was open about data limitations and key assumptions. Various stakeholder consultations were conducted, including two public online consultations. The Commission proved flexible and responsive in that it developed two options in direct response to feedback from the Administrative Commission. Consequently, however, the views of other stakeholders, including of social partners and NGOs regarding such options (which became the Commission’s preferred options) were not gathered through a formal consultation.

Debt Sustainability and Economic Convergence of Euro-Area Member States: Challenges and Solutions (Paolo Manasse)

23-02-2015

This paper argues that fiscal convergence in the Euro area has been achieved at the expenses of real divergence in unemployment, investment and, at least temporarily, growth. Statistical and econometric analysis supports the view that the current fiscal framework addressed debt sustainability concerns, but imparted a pro-cyclical bias, which contributed to economic divergence. The recent flexibility guidelines are a step in the right direction, but they are unlikely to have sizable effects. A reform ...

This paper argues that fiscal convergence in the Euro area has been achieved at the expenses of real divergence in unemployment, investment and, at least temporarily, growth. Statistical and econometric analysis supports the view that the current fiscal framework addressed debt sustainability concerns, but imparted a pro-cyclical bias, which contributed to economic divergence. The recent flexibility guidelines are a step in the right direction, but they are unlikely to have sizable effects. A reform of the fiscal framework and a mechanism for an intra-European unemployment insurance scheme is proposed.

Enhancing the Legitimacy of EMU Governance

15-12-2014

This study investigates ways to enhance the legitimacy of economic governance in the Economic and Monetary Union (EMU) without introducing Treaty changes. It suggests changes in the governance framework at both the institutional and economic level. Input-oriented legitimacy can be improved by increasing parliamentary oversight on decisions related to EMU and increasing the accountability of the Eurogroup. Output-oriented legitimacy can be improved by strengthening the ability of EMU to reduce the ...

This study investigates ways to enhance the legitimacy of economic governance in the Economic and Monetary Union (EMU) without introducing Treaty changes. It suggests changes in the governance framework at both the institutional and economic level. Input-oriented legitimacy can be improved by increasing parliamentary oversight on decisions related to EMU and increasing the accountability of the Eurogroup. Output-oriented legitimacy can be improved by strengthening the ability of EMU to reduce the emergence of negative externalities and to mitigate their impact, through market and fiscal risk-sharing mechanisms. This study was requested by the EP's Committee on Economic and Monetary Affairs (ECON).

The economic potential of the ten-point Juncker Plan for growth without debt

28-11-2014

This study offers a series of provisional estimations of the potential gains to the European Union economy that could be generated over time from pursuing the ten-point plan presented by Jean-Claude Juncker to the European Parliament before he was elected President of the European Commission in July 2014. It forms part of a series of studies being undertaken on the potential added value from European-level initiatives advocated in resolutions of the European Parliament.

This study offers a series of provisional estimations of the potential gains to the European Union economy that could be generated over time from pursuing the ten-point plan presented by Jean-Claude Juncker to the European Parliament before he was elected President of the European Commission in July 2014. It forms part of a series of studies being undertaken on the potential added value from European-level initiatives advocated in resolutions of the European Parliament. The text covers seven of the ten guidelines proposed by the Commission President, where quantification can be attempted: A deeper and fairer Internal Market with a strengthened industrial base; A connected Digital Single Market; A deeper and fairer Economic and Monetary Union; A resilient Energy Union with a forward-looking climate change policy; A reasonable and balanced Free Trade Agreement with the United State; Europe as a stronger global actor; An area of justice and fundamental rights based on mutual trust. This attempt to quantify the economic potential of the political guidelines presented by Jean-Claude Juncker, can be read in conjunction with the exercise of Mapping the Cost of Non-Europe 2014-19, which has so far been published by the European Added Value Unit in March and July 2014.

Common unemployment insurance scheme for the euro area

01-10-2014

The European Parliament has called for a “social dimension” to the Economic and Monetary Union to tackle unemployment and restore growth following the recent economic crisis. Among various alternative options, automatic stabilisers could potentially be means of stabilising the Eurozone, while at the same time addressing social problems associated with the financial crisis. This Cost of Non-Europe report explores the prospects for introducing an automatic stabilizer in the form of ...

The European Parliament has called for a “social dimension” to the Economic and Monetary Union to tackle unemployment and restore growth following the recent economic crisis. Among various alternative options, automatic stabilisers could potentially be means of stabilising the Eurozone, while at the same time addressing social problems associated with the financial crisis. This Cost of Non-Europe report explores the prospects for introducing an automatic stabilizer in the form of an Unemployment Insurance Scheme for the euro area, which will provide the monetary union with greater stability in the medium and long term. It builds on two research papers commissioned for the purpose, which are included as annexes. Analysis of its potential benefits, had it existed during the recent crisis, shows that such a scheme would have reduced the fall in GDP in the most affected Member States by 71 billion euro in the period between 2009 and 2012.  

Estimación del coste de la no Europa 2014-2019

05-03-2014

El presente estudio recoge el trabajo en curso de un proyecto a largo plazo destinado a identificar y analizar el «coste de la no Europa» en determinados ámbitos de políticas. Este concepto, utilizado por primera vez por el Parlamento Europeo en la década de 1980, se emplea en este estudio para cuantificar las posibles mejoras de eficiencia que supondría para la economía de la Unión el desarrollo de una serie de iniciativas políticas defendidas recientemente por el Parlamento (desde un mercado único ...

El presente estudio recoge el trabajo en curso de un proyecto a largo plazo destinado a identificar y analizar el «coste de la no Europa» en determinados ámbitos de políticas. Este concepto, utilizado por primera vez por el Parlamento Europeo en la década de 1980, se emplea en este estudio para cuantificar las posibles mejoras de eficiencia que supondría para la economía de la Unión el desarrollo de una serie de iniciativas políticas defendidas recientemente por el Parlamento (desde un mercado único digital más amplio y profundo hasta políticas nacionales y europeas de defensa y desarrollo mejor coordinadas). Los beneficios también pueden medirse en función del PIB adicional generado o de un empleo más lógico de los recursos públicos. Hasta el momento, el análisis señala que, a largo plazo, estas medidas pueden suponer un aumento de aproximadamente 800 000 millones EUR para la economía europea (el 6 % del PIB actual). La finalidad del presente estudio es servir como contribución al debate cada vez más activo sobre las prioridades políticas de la Unión Europea para el próximo ciclo quinquenal institucional comprendido entre 2014 y 2019.
