CPB Lecture 2023 "Redesigning EU fiscal rules: how to account for climate action?"
The discussion about European fiscal rules has heated up again. It is clear that the current rules system is no longer adequate. But what is the alternative? And how can we ensure that within the alternative system necessary “green investments” will take place? Jeromin Zettelmeyer, director of Bruegel, an European think-tank will share his ideas with us at the annual CPB Lecture on November 16 in the Glazen Zaal in The Hague.
Currently Zettelmeyer's work focuses on macro-economics, public debts and the architecture of the European fiscal system. Recently he also considered the consequences of climate change and the stimulation of the necessary investments for adaptation and mitigation. The lecture is followed by further discussion in a panel with Ester Barendregt (Chief Economist Rabobank), Roel Beetsma (UvA en member European Fiscal Board) en Aniek Moonen (Future builder en climate activist) and the audience, moderated by Esther van Rijswijk.
The lecture is a physical meeting that will take place in the Glazen Zaal in The Hague. Doors open at 14:30 and the event lasts from 15:00-17:00 with drinks afterwards.
You can register by sending an e-mail to Simone Pailer. The CPB Lecture will be in English.
We hope to see you on November 16!
