Read the paper
Co-authored by Prof. Stephany Griffith-Jones, Columbia University (New York) and FEPS consultant, Dr Matthias Kollatz-Ahnen, former Senior Vice-President of the European Investment Bank and Lars Andersen, Director of the European Council of the Labour Movement (Denmark), the paper present concrete proposals (with appropriate figures and estimates) to significantly increase lending by the European Investment Bank as well as other measures (notably the use of structural funds and project bonds), so as to meaningfully advance the European Union growth agenda. Indeed, modelling work included in the paper shows that highly needed jobs, especially for the youth, could be created in the European Union with the proposed measures.
