Investment in human capital and long-term financing
The impact of the economic crisis on industry has been severe and the rise in unemployment considerable. Thanks to policies supporting banks and economic recovery packages, we can hope for an end to the recession by the end of 2010. However, a sustainable recovery will only be achieved if we are able to establish the conditions of a new growth model, and if the costs of dealing with the crisis are properly managed.
- On June 23 2009, we examined how European efforts to combat climate change and encourage sustainable development are giving rise to a revival in industry.
- On December 10 and 11 2009, we investigated the measures being taken by businesses and governments concerning training and preparation for new jobs. Together, we explored a framework for long-term financing that is likely to encourage an increase in social and industrial investment.
