How to Create Growth and Jobs?
Past Events / Videos
Free Market Road Show organized in association with the Austrian Economics Center | 27th May 2015.

Since the 2008 financial crisis most of Europe’s economies have not fully recovered and their economic forecasts are not good. As a matter of fact, in 2014 eurozone countries recorded a dismal 0.9 GDP growth. Twin deficits are to be found in some of the Europe’s largest economies. The welfare state not only burdens future generations but seems incapable of achieving its purposes.

What recipe does Europe need to change the declining trend? Can more centralization produce different results? Or should Europe instead reverse course, liberalize the economy, lower tariffs and subsidies, and stop paying lip service to austerity, and really balance budgets and lower taxes?

Speakers at the 2015 Free Market Road Show proposed answers to these and related questions when it visited Budapest on 27th May 2015.
