18:00 – 19:00 PANEL 1: HOW NOT TO WASTE A “GOOD” CRISIS AND THE FUTURE OF EUROPE??
What are the alternatives to borrowing from the future? Are pension-, healthcare-, and administrative reforms a precondition to prevent the welfare states from falling apart and to prepare the ground for the next generation? Where is the link between government weight and prosperity and where, if at all, (spending/service) cuts need to be made? Is a paradigm shift realistic? The issue of how to balance and take “social” and economic responsibility for the next generation in the light of recent bailouts will be discussed.
