Jointly organised by Bruegel and the European Economic Advisory Group (EEAG) at CESifo, this event cast an in-depth look at the protracted, intractable crisis of the euro, with possible ways to overcome it, as well as presented a thorough economic forecast for the coming 12 months. The event featured presentations by Jan-Egbert Sturm, followed by comments from Zsolt Darvas and an open discussion chaired by Guntram Wolff.

This event marked the official launch of the eleventh yearly EEAG Report on the European Economy. As its tradition dictates, the EEAG Report provides a comprehensive forecast for the European economy for the coming year and reviews the policy options available. This year, in addition to the euro crisis, it throws a spotlight on two countries –Sweden and Hungary– that, thanks to their diametrically opposing recent economic performance, offer lessons for European countries within and without the Eurozone. It also focuses on banking regulation and on how to price climate change. The EEAG comprises eight internationally renowned economists from seven European countries.
