Bruegel hosted the presentation of "The Governance Report 2013", a collaborative effort of scholars and practitioners from many parts of the world, anchored by a research and editorial team based at the Hertie School of Governance.

Authors Helmut K. Anheier and Lucia Quaglia presented findings from the report relating to financial and fiscal governance in Europe.

During the crisis, problems extended cross-border, whilst jurisdictions for most economic policy remained national. Technocratic solutions to the crisis proved inadequate mostly because they all entailed trade-offs and distributional implications, which have not been taken into sufficient account.

These trade-offs include liquidity versus moral hazard, accountability versus effectiveness, and domestic politics versus international commitments. Good governance is mainly about resolving these trade-offs.

The presentation was followed by a reflection from Daniel Mügge, University of Amsterdam, and by a wider discussion on governance challenges in the euro zone and possible ways forwards.

Putin’s War and the German Economic Model

After the fall of communism, Germany went from being the sick man of Europe to being its leading economic power, largely by harnessing the benefits of global supply chains. But now that a new era of deglobalization is dawning, Germany will have to think carefully about how it should manage its dependence on international trade.

The basic idea is that observable forecasts of macroeconomic variables are transformations of the sets of macroeconomic information, which are so complex as to be unobservable, prevailing when the forecasts are made.
