What's wrong with Europe's Economy

Centre for Economic Performance Public Lecture

Date: Wednesday 5 February 2003
Time: 6.00pm
Venue: Old Theatre, Old Building
Speaker: Adair Turner
Chair: Professor Anthony Giddens

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 is currently senior adviser and vide 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 with no ticket required. Entry is on a first come, first serve basis.
