During the aftermath of the financial crisis, certain paradoxical trends have emerged in Europe. Firstly, despite the context of economic adjustment and restructuring, the employment rate of older workers has increased in most countries, and secondly, saving rates have remained remarkably resilient to the interest rate squeeze pursued by central banks as an economic stimulus. The question arises, whether lower interest rates effectively discourage or rather encourage saving among older workers, or even constitute an incentive to work longer, in case their saving strategy aims at maintaining a standard of living after retirement. The working paper adresses this issue through a model based approach.

The economic situation in the EU has been improving continuously for nearly two years with EU GDP now reaching pre-crisis levels and the recovery extending to most Member States. Employment in the EU also continues to improve, extending to nearly all sectors and involving more permanent and full-time jobs. The increase in employment and participation has also widened to all sub-population groups. Unemployment is slowly receding from its high levels in the EU and in most Member States. Long-term unemployment receded for the first time since the onset of the crisis, and youth unemployment declines to the 2009-2010 level. Alongside this, household income continues to increase at a faster pace compared with the previous quarters. These are some of the main conclusions of the European Commission's latest Employment and Social Situation Quarterly Review. This Report is available in electronic format in English only.

The paper provides a comparative analysis on human resources trends and their implications for employment and economic growth at global scale. Taking stock of specific population characteristics, it focuses on the inescapable challenge of workforce shrinking and its policy implications. The analysis concludes that productivity growth will progressively become the only way to sustain economic growth not only in the EU and several other industrialised regions but also in some of the emerging economies. It also reveals a growing north-south imbalance in terms of labour reserves. While the 2013 publication looked at human resources constrains within the EU, this paper extends to the global context, comparing the EU to other global players.

According to this edition of the EU Employment and Social Situation Quarterly Review, the recent and currently fragile economic recovery has not yet been able to create new jobs and the social situation in the EU shows little signs of improvement so far. The improved outcomes in the EU labour markets are still at best modest. Employment showed the first signs of stabilising in 2013, with a 0.1% growth in the second half of the year. This analysis also points to an expected increase in poverty levels and a slight improvement in the impact of social protection expenditure in 2013, even if its support effect remains very weak. The situation for households remains serious. The income that households have at their disposal is lagging behind the growth of Gross Domestic Product. It provides also empirical evidence that the crisis at its height had the strongest adverse impact on labour market transitions of men and young people.
