Why Europe’s Challenges Are Also It’s Best Opportunities
Apr. 18, 2016 (Mimesis Labs) — Karl Aiginger, Director of the Austrian Institute of Economic Research talks about restarting growth in Europe. In his view, there are three main ways to tackle the issue: firstly, through decarbonization and making Europe a leader in environmental technology, energy efficiency and renewable energy. Secondly, constructing a pluralistic approach of political and social inclusiveness with central and eastern European countries, who are seeing a large growth in their economies. Finally, viewing the refugee crisis as a solution to the aging population and declining workforce problem that Europe is facing. His comments were made prior to the 2016 Austrian Investor and Business Conference at the Lotte New York Palace Hotel in New York City.
