Description:CESifo / Ifo Conference on Do We Need National or European Champions?
Location:Munich, Germany
Subject:EU countries are deeply divided about the role of industrial policy, with preferences ranging from neo-liberal approaches to strong government support for national champions. Does this facilitate the sell-out of national economies with hands-off governments, or do interventionist governments hurt themselves because they create huge and inefficient corporations? Is economic patriotism legitimate? Should other EU members counter by adopting similar national policies? Do we need a common industrial policy that supports European champions? What is the best way of unleashing Europes innovation potential? These questions are central to the future position of the European market in the international division of labour and yet, the views about the relative role of the various government levels concerning these questions of competition supervision, regulation and industrial support vary strongly.
