Should Europe have a more proactive industrial policy or is creating the right environment all that is needed? Do some countries (e.g., in Scandinavia) deploy public resources more efficiently than others and if so, how? How can banks and other financial institutions be made more efficient in allocating capital? Is it better or worse to have more flexible labor markets? Is there a need for an alternative system of industrial and labor relations? Do anti-inequality and welfare policies promote or retard growth? Do pro-gender policies and regional policies promote labor force participation and growth?
