EuroInsights: economic lessons in 2023

Funcas Europe

Hello Future is blue readers,

Welcome to our newsletter about European economic affairs bringing together top experts from academia and think tanks to discuss the most pressing economic challenges of today. Future is Blue is promoted by Funcas

Today we are taking a moment to step back and reflect on the lessons learned for Europe's economy in 2023, a year characterized by slow economic growth, declining inflation, tight monetary policy and, overall, a broad understanding of Europe's need to adapt to a new geopolitical landscape dominated by the power rivalry between the US and China.

In our new podcast episode, we've asked Sander Tordoir, Senior Economist at the Centre for European Reform, and Raymond Torres, Funcas Europe Director,  to reflect on key learnings of 2023 and anticipate some of the main policy discussions for the new year.

Below you can find more information on our latest show hosted by Carlos Carnicero Urabayen.

Don't miss our weekly readings at the bottom of this newsletter.
