Our Progressive Society in the 21st Century

The European economy is now in the middle of the worst crisis in the history of the European Union. At worst unemployment will continue to rise and will reach 10½ percent in 2011. At best, with a GDP growth rate above 2 percent in 2011, the unemployment curve will break, but this will break off in 2011, but the unemployment rate will still be higher in 2011 than in 2009. There is therefore a major need to increase the European growth potential in the medium and long run. The strategy suggested in this paper focus on the following three pillars: Green investments, education and gender equality.
