Progressive Economic Policy Online Conference

Tuesday 26 May from 17.00 to 18.30 with:

  • Nadia Calviño, Spanish Deputy Prime Minister and Minister of Economic Affairs and Digital Transformation
  • Joseph Stiglitz, Nobel Laureate, Columbia University
  • Paolo Gentiloni, European Commissioner for Economy
  • Moderation: Maria João Rodrigues, FEPS President

This is the momentum to discuss progressive economic policy and join progressive forces to change the economic paradigm that in Europe gives priority to macroeconomic stability instead of socio-economic and political stability.


Nadia Calviño, Joseph Stiglitz and Paolo Gentiloni will participate in this online conference, moderated by Maria João Rodrigues. They will debate what should be the socio-economic answers to the current emergency and will look at how the crisis changes the role of the state in the economy and how we have to develop new policies both for counter-cyclical response, as well as for a useful investment that can drive the different transformations that our society need.

This event is organised in partnership with Friedrich Ebert Stiftung, the Pablo Iglesias Foundation and the Macroeconomic Policy Institute (IMK) of the Hans-Böckler-Foundation.

You can register here to participate through Zoom or join our FB event if you prefer to follow the event through Facebook Live but you still want to receive the latest updates of the event and the material related. You can send us your questions in advance (through Zoom or FB event) or post your questions in the Chat of Zoom or commenting the Facebook live streaming.

 

This online conference is part of the Progressive Economic Policy Initiative: 

The Foundation for European Progressive Studies (FEPS) in partnership with the Friedrich Ebert Stiftung (FES), the German Trade Union Confederation (DGB) and the Macroeconomic Policy Institute (IMK) of the Hans-Böckler-Stiftung yearly organise the “Day of Progressive Economic Policy” in Berlin.

The physical event will not take place this year rather a series of webinar will be organised, this one also with the collaboration of the Pablo Iglesias Foundation.

During the time of the German Presidency, from the end of June 2020 till the end of the year, the FES in partnership with FEPS, DGB and IMK will run a blog-project to discuss the different aspects of the European economic policy.
