Europe in the global economy - How to stimulate private investment

October 6, 2014 at ESMT European School of Management and Technology, Schlossplatz 1, 10178 Berlin

Only strong economic growth will help Europe emerge from its crisis. The reforms implemented to date at national and European level have failed to impact the economy positively; this is due to excessive national, corporate, and private debts, weakness of the banking system, the lack of structural reforms, an insufficient institutional framework at European level, as well as a persisting climate of distrust in the stability of economic development. Europe’s biggest economic weaknesses are a lack of private investment. A European investment agenda is vital in order to generate the impetus required to push the European economy towards a sustainable recovery.
