The Report of “Group of 20” is the result of a project carried out between October 2013 and June 2014 by a distinguished panel of experts who shared the idea of producing a series of papers in view of the EU Semester of Italian Presidency and the new phase opened up by the recent European Parliamentary elections.

Approximately forty participants attended the working group meetings which were held on a monthly basis at the SNA (Italian National School of Administration), giving rise to the “Report of 20” which refers to the number of papers selected for publication.

A conscious effort was made to include experts from diverse disciplines and professional backgrounds in the working group, with the conviction that this was necessary to ensure a vision that represented a wide array of approaches and experiences.

Indeed, from the start, the Report was conceived not as a unified proposal, but as a collection of ideas and considerations on the debate which has opened up on the future of Europe.

A synthesis of the Report, written by Professor Giovanni Tria:

The eurozone crisis started in Greece in 2009–10, spread into Ireland and Portugal, and, from there, quickly spread to the larger economies of Spain and Italy. By the autumn of 2011, it threatened the entire global financial system. In Europe’s Crisis, Europe’s Future, an international group of economic analysts provides an insightful view of the crisis. How did mismanagement of a crisis in a marginal economy spark such a wildfire? After all, Greece is responsible for only 2% of the eurozone’s total GDP, yet the crisis in Athens threatened to grow into a worldwide contagion.

What is competitiveness? There is no agreed definition of competitiveness nor well defined indicators to measure it. The book tries to investigate ways to define and, more importantly, measure competitiveness, with a focus on its external dimension and special reference to Europe and Italy. It deals with theoretical and methodological aspects of its measurement and looks at empirical evidence on Italy’s performance, the factors explaining it and potential policy implications. External competitiveness does not depend solely on the performance of exporting companies, but also on the allocation of resources within the economy, demand across tradable and non-tradable sectors, efficiency and productivity of all economic activities that impact on the cost structure of exporting firms. In this regard, sectoral and firm-level analysis are important. Moreover, the role of nonprice/ cost factors is substantial and rising, and is particularly relevant in assessing Italy’s situation. What is the picture that emerges for Italy? A superficial glance at selected macroeconomic indicators for Italy would give the impression of a loss in competitiveness over the past few years. Digging deeper into macro and micro data, however, provides interesting insights and shows a much more complex and articulated picture, with evidence of an ongoing process of creative destruction and adaptation to the new global competitive environment.

Authors: Boeri T., Brunetta R., Buti M., Ceriani V., Corteel D., Creel J., Crespo-Cuaresma J., Dimitz M.A., Felli E., Fitoussi J.P., Giudice G., Le Blanc G., Micossi S., Morelli P., Padoan P.C., Padovano F., Paganetto L., Pisani-Ferry J., Ritzberger-Grünwald D., Rodano L., Stehn J.

The enlargement process, the creation of the Monetary Union and the need to promote further the political and economic integration of Europe have ignited an intense debate at the European level among researchers and policy-makers.

Examining the effects that political, legal, and regulatory institutions have on economic development, this book provides new contributions on the political economy of the European constitution. It covers many issues including social protection, fiscal reform and regional policies that are on the table of European policy makers. Furthermore, it provides ideas and analysis of such issues as the problem of voting reform, the centralization and decentralization of the policy process and the allocation of new policy prerogatives at the EU level which are crucial for the design of a new European constitution.

Authors: Becchetti L., Colombo M.G., Daveri F., Delmastro M., Dierx A., Heimler A., Ilzkovitz F., Jorgenson D.W., Kiley M.T., Kopp A., Le Blanc G., Londoño Bedoya D.A., Lynch L.M., Masciandaro D., Nicita A., Paganetto L., Rey P., Scandizzo P.L., Stiroh K.J., van Wegberg M., Willig R.D., Zagler M.

This volume focuses on the information and communication (ICT) revolution and its impact on economic growth. Even though the emergence of the knowledge economy is at the center of attention by media and is often a subject of economic policy debate, economic research on the issue is still relatively underdeveloped and many aspects of it are still awaiting proper theoretical and empirical scrutiny. One important question is whether, as many economists and opinion leaders maintain the knowledge economy and the new information technologies have fostered the birth of a “new economy” which by inducing a strong productivity growth in most sectors, is behind the impressive growth of GDP experienced by the US economy. Empirical research has in fact been unable to provide a conclusive answer to this question. This book debates this issue and provides the opportunity to discuss the economic and social effects of the ICT revolution. It also focuses on the functioning and the micro-economic structure of the ICT sector, as well as on its impact on various industries, on the financial system and on the labor market. It analyses the role of the ICT revolution on regional development and it addresses important policy issues such as its consequences for antitrust legislation and government regulation.

Il Consiglio Europeo ha approvato nel giugno di quest’anno “Europa 2020″, la nuova strategia decennale per l’occupazione e la crescita, proposta dalla Commissione Europea.

La Commissione ha individuato tre motori di crescita, da mettere in atto mediante azioni concrete a livello europeo e nazionale: crescita intelligente; crescita sostenibile; crescita inclusiva.

Questa battaglia per la crescita e l’occupazione richiede un coinvolgimento al massimo livello politico e la mobilitazione di tutte le parti interessate in Europa, oggi ancor più necessario ed attuale, nel momento in cui si avvia il processo di una nuova Governance economica europea.
