Yearbook of the Euro

European Macroeconomics and Governance

Date: Feb 17 - Topic: European Macroeconomics & Governance

On 17 February Bruegel will host the presentation of the The Euro Yearbook, a project of the Spanish Financial Studies Foundation, Fundación de Estudios Financieros, and Fundación ICO. It aims to describe, analyse and discuss the process leading to a European Monetary Policy. As with the previous Euro Yearbook 2013, this year’s study has been directed by Fernando Fernández Méndez de Andés, professor at the IE Business School.

The presentation of this second report in the collection will go over the contents dealing with the current reality of the Monetary Union.

The director of the study, Fernando Fernández Méndez de Andés, will summarize the authors’ insights on the relevance of euro in international trade and finance arenas, the European financial integration process, the new mechanisms for the banking union, and the challenges in bringing about a fiscal, economic and social union in Europe, among others.

A list of ten lessons learned on this year’s euro development will be also presented to open up the discussion on the study that, to quote its Director, “is not an academic study, but rather a study of policy… to help monetary union become more sustainable, and in doing so help the Eurozone overcome its structural crisis of low growth, excess debt and unacceptable levels of unemployment.”

Speakers

  • Fernando Fernandez, Professor at IE Business School
  • Javier Méndez Llera, Excecutive director of Fundación de Estudios Financieros
  • Fernando Navarrete Rojas, Chief Financial Officer of ICO
  • Jean Pisani-Ferry, Commissioner General for Policy Planning at the French Government
  • Chair: Guntram Wolff, Director of Bruegel

Practical Details:

  • Venue: Bruegel, Rue de la Charité 33, 1210 Brussels
  • Time: 17 February 2015, 12:30-14:30. Lunch will be served at 12:30 after which the event begins at 13:00.

For the euro there is no shortcut to becoming a dominant currency

As an international currency, the euro has always been a distant second to the dollar. The idea of a greater international role for the euro has been floated, but without major institutional reform, the euro will not become a dominant currency.

Europe’s recovery gamble

Next Generation EU, was rightly hailed as a major breakthrough: never before had the EU borrowed to finance expenditures, let alone transfers to member states. But the programme and its Recovery and Resilience Facility amount to a high-risk gamble.
