Policy puzzles are topics for which economists have a clear policy prescription but where actual policies do not follow it.
In this workshop participants explored the reasons for this, whether economic prescriptions were wrong or there were peculiarities in the political decision mechanism to look at.
Wouter van der Wielen, from the JRC Fiscal Policy Analysis team, presented the set-up of the ongoing project "The impact of unemployment evolutions and uncertainty in fiscal forecasting".
