DigitalAmitié: a Franco-German Axis to Drive Digital Growth and Integration/DigitalAmitié: Un axe franco-allemand en faveur du développement et l’intégration numérique

Posted by fidest press agency su sabato, 1 aprile 2017

europeFrom 2015 onwards the EU-Commission has gradually presented the Digital Single Market Strategy (DSM), an ambitious regulatory overhaul designed to adapt the rules of the game within the Single Market to the demands of digitalization. Yet, will it be enough to put the EU on par with the champions of the digital transformation in the US and parts of Asia? And how could Member States collaborate more to fully reap the economic potential of digitalization?
In this Policy Paper, Henrik Enderlein, Director of the Jacques Delors Institut – Berlin, Paul-Jasper Dittrich, Research Fellow at the Jacques Delors Institut – Berlin and David Rinaldi, Research Fellow at the CEPS et Associate Research Fellow at the Jacques Delors Institute, outline a proposal for an intergovernmental approach: A DigitalAmitié between France and Germany for start-ups, education and towards regulatory convergence in “borderless sectors”.
L’UE est en retard en matière de développement numérique. Face à ce constat, la Commission a adopté une stratégie pour un Marché unique numérique. Mais ce programme, certes ambitieux, peut-il libérer réellement le potentiel numérique de l’UE dans un délai suffisant ?
Dans ce Policy Paper, Henrik Enderlein, directeur du Jacques Delors Institut – Berlin, Paul-Jasper Dittrich, chercheur au Jacques Delors Institut – Berlin et David Rinaldi, chercheur au CEPS et chercheur associé à l’Institut Jacques Delors, remettent en question la définition trop étroite du numérique sur laquelle repose la stratégie de l’UE, qui n’englobe pas les marchés nationaux de services, alors que c’est là que réside le plus grand potentiel d’un véritable développement numérique. Ainsi, ils proposent une démarche de coopération intergouvernementale entre des groupes d’États membres, une « coalition de bonnes volontés », afin de faire progresser la convergence réglementaire au sein de différents cadres géographiques et sectoriels. Ainsi, la France et l’Allemagne pourraient adopter une telle approche afin de construire un écosystème numérique commun.

Labour mobility in the euro area: cure or curse?

Posted by fidest press agency su domenica, 13 marzo 2016

Labour mobilityThe euro area has to address its imbalances and instability. Labour mobility in a currency union can be both a curse or a cure in this context. When job seekers move from areas with high employment to regions with many vacancies, they act effectively as shock absorbers. However, when young and better educated individuals move from structurally weak regions to dynamic ones, they can contribute to imbalances.In this Policy paper, Anna auf dem Brinke and Paul-Jasper Dittrich from our office in Germany, the Jacques Delors Institut – Berlin, look at the years following the crisis of 2008. Did labour mobility increase or decrease imbalances in the euro area? In times of low growth, the data suggest that labour mobility is rather a cure than a curse. However, its potential for the citizens of the currency area is not fully exploited yet. For labour mobility to play a role in the stabilization of the euro area against future asymmetric shocks much more policy action is needed. This is true for the national as well as the European level.To this end they discuss three complementary strategies. First, there is a need to facilitate more flexible working conditions and invest more in infrastructure that allows people to work and live in different countries. Second, there is a need to take measures to fully integrate the national labour markets into one European labour market. Third, there is a need for complementary institutions such as a permanent adjustment mechanism to further reduce the effect of asymmetric shocks. Labour mobility is a necessary but not sufficient ingredient for reducing imbalances in the euro area. The data show clearly that in the wake of the Great Recession, increasing labour mobility has the potential to lower unemployment and stabilize the euro area. (photo: Labour mobility)

L’Allemagne et la stabilité de l’UEM/Deutschland und die Stabilität der WWU/Germany and the stability of the EMU

Posted by fidest press agency su sabato, 30 gennaio 2016

Institut Jacques DelorsDans quelle mesure la politique européenne de l’Allemagne a-t-elle contribué à la stabilisation de l’euro? Dans leur Policy paper, Henrik Enderlein, Katharina Gnath et Jörg Haas, respectivement directeur et chercheurs dans notre bureau en Allemagne, le Jacques Delors Institut – Berlin, montrent comment le concept allemand de “communauté de stabilité” a façonné la monnaie commune. Ils estiment que s’il était initialement entendu au sens strict, le concept s’est progressivement élargi. Ils mentionnent également les domaines dans lesquels l’union monétaire reste inachevée.
Inwieweit hat die deutsche Europapolitik zur Stabilisierung des Euro beigetragen? Henrik Enderlein, Katharina Gnath und Jörg Haas zeichnen in ihrem Policy Paper nach, wie das deutsche Konzept der “Stabilitätsgemeinschaft” die Gemeinschaftswährung geprägt hat. Sie argumentieren, dass sich der anfangs eng gefasste Stabilitätsbegriff mit der Zeit erweitert hat und zeigen auf, wo die Währungsunion weiterhin Lücken aufweist.
Germany has played an important part in designing the architecture of the euro and has been a decisive actor in recent efforts to repair the eurozone. How has Germany’s concept of a “stability community” shaped EU policy and to what extent has it been successful in stabilizing the common currency? In the euro’s founding phase, German demands concentrated on low inflation rates and low levels of government debt. Yet it became apparent in the crisis that Germany’s idea of stability was narrowly defined. Apart from a lack of budgetary discipline, key destabilizing factors included current account imbalances, a lack of crisis management tools, and the self-reinforcing dynamics between weakened banks and over-indebted states – all of which had all been largely ignored prior to the crisis.
Over the course of the crisis, the German government has broadly adhered to its traditional concept of stability based on control and supervision of eurozone members. At the same time Germany has repeatedly acted in a pragmatic manner to safeguard the existence of the eurozone. It was willing to lend support to the creation of the European Stability Mechanism and the Banking Union and countenanced the ECB’s extraordinary measures. Despite the reform efforts of the past years, the eurozone still has some serious design faults that threaten the very stability of the common currency. Yet member states disagree on the necessary parameters for a stable currency union and differences in perceptions and preferences have met head-on in the course of the recent reform debates. German policy on Europe should try to play a constructive role by spelling out under which circumstances increased risk sharing in the euro area would be acceptable. (Photo: )
