  • Europeans are living in a time of great uncertainty filled with both enormous opportunities and profound risks for the future of the common European project. Many feel uneasy about their economic, social and environmental futures and anxiety about how to keep up with rapid technological change and deepened globalization.For the first time since the beginning of the European integration process, there is real urgency for Europe to reaffirm its unique raison d’etre. A changing geopolitical landscape leaves the region with the responsibility to step up its global leadership role and to stand up for democracy, rule of law and multilateral diplomacy
  • The United States entered its longest expansion on record (10 years) as of June 2019, and there are increasing questions about whether any reliable indicators can help us forecast the next turning point.Here is a short guide to consider the difficult task of predicting recessions.
  • Participants either played anonymously or were informed of the identity of their partner, in which case it was one of their Facebook friends. In addition, they were invited to play either a single game or repeated ones with that partner. To gauge the strength of social ties between a pair of players, the researchers tallied the number of their common friends, shared wall posts and photos in which both were tagged.As expected, the level of trust was highest between partners who knew each other and played repeated games with one another. The second highest level of trust was seen between anonymous players who played repeatedly together. Trust was lowest among anonymous players who partnered only once.
  • The issue of geographical balance has been relevant since 2004, but only since the Lisbon Treaty do we talk of ‘top jobs’. Before, there was the Commission president, the Parliament president and Javier Solana.Since 2009, there are other top jobs, including a beefed-up High Representative as the vice-president of the European Commission and chair of the Foreign Affairs Council, and a permanent President of the European Council.
  • We have a vision, which is to build a fairer capitalism. But we also want to have the tools to reach that vision.What do you hope to achieve on the digital tax, given that there is a US investigation on France’s national digital tax?We want to have effective taxation of internet giants. I made very clear from the very beginning that, as soon as there is an international tax on digital companies, we will withdraw our national tax.Instead of putting sanctions against France, I will urge my American friends to enter into a fair negotiation to find a compromise at the G7 level. I really think that the fact that France has introduced a national tax has led to an acceleration of the process within the OECD.
