Europe has been getting bad press. The Greeks and the Italians have been excoriated for endangering the euro. Iceland, Ireland, and Spain have been criticized for reckless financial policies. Endless summitry in Brussels has not helped - indeed, it sometimes seems that Europe's own stewards do not fully appreciate the achievements of its economic model, of the project they are trying to nurture back to health. Meanwhile, Europe is increasingly seen by Americans and Asians as sluggish, even spoilt. Europe accounts for more than a quarter of the world's output and half of the global trade, so the region's growth prospects are everybody's concern.
What's in store for Europe? Based on policy research done at the World Bank (available at www.worldbank.org/goldengrowth) over the last two years, Indermit Gill will present a report card on the European economy. The grades might surprise you.
Indermit Gill, AM'85 PhD'89, is the chief economist for Europe and Central Asia at the World Bank. Before this, he has worked in East Asia and Latin America. He directed the 2009 World Development Report, Reshaping Economic Geography, and is a principal author of several reports including Golden Growth: Restoring the Luster of the European Economic Model; An East Asian Renaissance; and Keeping the Promise of Social Security in Latin America.
