We present and discuss current research and economic policy related topics in International Economics. This quarter about:
EU: Financial Framework 2014-2020
An overview of the numbers and details of the proposed financial framework.
In times of national debt brakes and increased fiscal discipline is "business as usual" not possible
The leaders of the EU have agreed on a budget until 2020. But the factions in the parliament reject the agreement.
An EU summit should decide on the budget next week.
Rather than squabble over details, Europe’s leaders should rethink the entire EU budget
Siim Kallas, the Commission vice president responsible for transport, said budget cuts for 2014-2020 proposed for the 22-23 November summit risked ‘cancelling’ European policies designed to link Eastern and Western parts of the continent.
Parliament and EU Member States have not been able to agree on a budget for 2013. The talks failed on the issue of the supplementary budget.
In the EU, there are friends of the agricultural budget, friends of cohesion policy and friends of "better spending". However, true friends of the EU budget are rare.
Will the US plunge off the 'fiscal cliff' in 2013?
If American consumers hadn't ignored politicians and carried on spending, GDP would have been even worse. Let it be a lesson
The compromise in the U.S. budget dispute shows once again that power politics is the American people's representatives more important than the welfare of the country.
Republican leaders were under mounting pressure from their own ranks on Sunday night to allow President Barack Obama to raise taxes on wealthy Americans to stop the US going over the "fiscal cliff".
With barely a month left before the "fiscal cliff," Republicans and Democrats remained far apart on Friday in talks to avoid the across-the-board tax hikes and spending cuts that threaten to throw the country back into recession.
President insists wealthy must pay their share and says he will not extend Bush-era tax cuts for wealthiest 2% of Americans
