A Basic European Unemployment Insurance

29 September 2014, Vienna

For a link to this event only, use the event permalink

"A basic European unemployment insurance scheme would provide a limited and predictable short-term fiscal stimulus to economies undergoing a downturn in the economic cycle - something that every country is going to experience sooner or later. With its automatic and countercyclical character, a basic European unemployment insurance scheme could boost market confidence in the EMU and thus help to avoid repeating vicious circles of downgrades, austerity and internal devaluation in the eurozone. It would help to uphold domestic demand and therefore economic growth in Europe as a whole."

WWWforEurope lecture by László Andor, Member of the European Commission in charge of Employment, Social Affairs and Inclusion.

For registration and details: Dr. Margit Schratzenstaller at WIFO, coordinator of WWWforEurope (wwwforeurope-office@wifo.ac.at ) and Domenico Rossetti di Valdalbero, Scientific Officer of WWWforEurope at European Commission, DG RTD (Domenico.Rossetti-di-Valdalbero@ec.europa.eu).
