Nov 4 16
In this episode of “The Sound of Economics” we examine the issue of inclusive growth and inequality in Europe.
We asked Zsolt Darvas, Senior Fellow at Bruegel, to explain us how is it possible to define and measure inclusive growth.
We spoke to Jana Hainsworth, President of the Social Platform, about the negative effects of social inequalities.
We also asked her which new policies should be implemented to support inclusive growth. Luca Visentini, Secretary General of the European Trade Unions Confederation, and Maxime Cerutti, Director of Business Europe’s Social Affairs department, also shared their opinion.
Finally, Zsolt Darvas highlighted the key policy recommendations from the Bruegel Blueprint “An Anatomy of inclusive growth”.
