Quarterly Report on the Euro Area (QREA), Vol.15, No.2 (2016)


Volume 15 N. 2 (2016) of the QREA looks at the role of cross-border risk sharing, both through financial and labour market incomes generated across borders and through cross-border fiscal transfers, in mitigating asymmetric shocks, and compares the situation in the euro area to that of the United States. Other sections examine the mechanisms through which financial markets effect the real economy and confidence spillovers in the euro area.
