STILL TIME TO SAVE
A NEW AGENDA FOR GROWTH AND JOBS
WITH A FOCUS ON THE EURO AREA’S FOUR
HANSJÖRG HERR, JAN PRIEWE AND
Dall'introduzione dei curatori: In June 2018, the editors of this book organised a workshop on “Twin Reforms in the Euro Area – Structural Reforms in Member States and the Design of the Monetary Union”.1 We intended to identify “structural reforms” necessary in selected Member States (MS) of the European Monetary Union (EMU) – mainly the four large EMU economies – in a more concrete manner than how the term is used in the predominant terminology where the focus is mostly on cutting budget deficits and liberalising labour, goods and services markets.
Such structural reforms should be put in the context of reforming EMU’s design which is widely agreed to be incomplete, despite the reforms that have taken place since 2011 in the aftermath of the
global financial crisis. The search for the two layers of structural reforms, in MS and at EMU level, includes taking stock of reforms that have already started and identifying reform areas that are either
under debate or not even addressed as key issues in policy-making. Our debates include institutional and constitutional reforms of the European Union (EU) and EMU itself. The results of our analyses
are presented in this book. All authors aim to write intelligibly for non-professional readers as well, thus refraining from technical analyses but pointing to them in the references.
