Economy and Finance
The European Union used to be called the European Economic Community. The economy has thus always be at the heart of European Integration. This part of the house deals with those areas which have been and are likely to remain at the forefront of policy discussions, dealing with the key questions: what is the optimal design for fiscal and monetary policies in the euro area? How to create resilient financial markets, and make the Banking Union work? How can we improve our labour markets and provide Europeans with the skills to become more productive?
