Macroeconomic policy has only partly been able to deliver convergence and stability, in the context of the upcoming revision of the EMU architecture and in view of the phasing out of the ECB quantitative easing, FEPS, the IMK and GPERC propose a reflection on how to better define a macroeconomic framework for the upcoming years. Andrew Watt (IMK) and Alberto Botta (GPERC) will present analysis and policy solution to be discussed with:

Jakob von Weizsäcker (MEP, S&D Group), Fabien Dell (Member of Commissioner Moscovici’s Cabinet), Agnès Bénassy Quéré (University of Paris I Panthéon Sorbonne, Paris School of Economics, Member of the Haut Conseil de Stabilité Financière, member of Bank of France General Board), Laszlo Andor (FEPS Senior Fellow, former Commissioner for Employment, Social Affairs, and Inclusion), James Watson (Director of Economics, Business Europe), Katja Lehto-Komulainen (Deputy Secretary General, ETUC).

Participation is free, registration is compulsory.
