What's Wrong With Europe's Economy?

Wednesday 5 February, 6pm
Old Theatre, Old Building

Many people believe Europe is an economic laggard versus the US, and that wide-ranging 'structural reform' is essential to stimulate growth. But this analysis fails to distinguish social choice from economic efficiency or to focus on the specific areas where difficult structural reform is needed, and it underplays the importance of macro factors, such as the objectives of the European Central Bank.

Adair Turner will be considering what is wrong with Europe's economy on Wednesday 5 February at the London School of Economics and Political Science (LSE).

Adair Turner is currently senior adviser and vice chairman of Merrill Lynch Holdings Ltd, a director of United Business Media plc, and chair of the Low Pay Commission. He is also a visiting professor at LSE.

This event is free and open to all. No ticket is required.
