Title: The Lisbon Strategy and Business Priorities in EU-25
Title (other): Benchmarking Report 2004
Abstract
The report gives a rather gloomy picture of the current state of the Lisbon process, even though there has been some progress during the last year, such as the spread of new technology in society and the liberalisation of several markets, e.g. the energy market. However, in many areas action is still missing. This is especially true in areas that are critical for long-term growth and where the Lisbon agenda is vague. Thus, reforms of the labour market and in the taxation area are most urgently needed in many EU countries. The credibility of the whole process is at stake. In order to trigger necessary structural changes decided upon in EU institutions and by member states, there must be incentives for effective implementation on national levels. The slow growth in many EU countries in recent years is clearly a result of the inability to launch necessary reforms on a national level. In many countries, the reform process has in fact almost come to a standstill. This is especially true for the labour market and for major countries like Germany, Italy and France. This report also gives an illustration of the new competitive situation in the wider EU that will be created in May 2004. The demand for structural renewal will be even stronger than before, which will put further pressure on the Lisbon agenda and make it more important than ever to start delivering. The report shows that there are hardly any areas where the EU-15 on average is ahead of the US. However, some countries achieve very high ratings in certain areas, scoring in parity with the US and in some rare cases also outshining the US. It is primarily Ireland, the UK and the Nordic countries which can match the American performance in some areas. [Urheber s. Copyright]

Title: Assessing the economic implications of Turkish accession to the EU
Abstract
The paper explores the economic implications of the possible Turkish accession to the European Union. It focuses on three main changes associated with Turkish membership: (i) accession to the internal European Market; (ii) institutional reforms in Turkey triggered by EU membership; and (iii) migration in response to the free movement of workers. Overall, the macroeconomic implications for EU countries are small but positive. This is caused by cheaper imports and the benefits from trade creation. Turkey experiences larger economic gains than the EU: consumption per capita is estimated to rise by about 4% as a result of accession to the internal market and free movement of labour. If Turkey would succeed in reforming its domestic institutions in response to EU membership, economic growth in Turkey could increase more. In particular, tentative estimates suggest that consumption per capita in Turkey could rise by an additional 9%. These benefits would spill over to the EU. For instance, Dutch exports to Turkey would rise by another 1.8 billion euro and income by 500 million euro. [Author vide copyright]

Title: Les Pays de la CEI sur la voie de la transition
Title (other): un succès en demi-teinte pour le programme TACIS
Abstract
The purpose of this paper is to assess the Tacis programme thirteen years after its inception. Using a combination of economic and social indicators, the paper shows the very high cost of the transition from a centrally planned to a market economy in the case of the thirteen Tacis countries. The paper is divided into three parts. The first part gives a general description of the transition to a market economy in the Tacis countries, highlighting the lead role played by the IMF, at a time when the minds of its economists and executive directors were perhaps the key component of what was soon to be known as the Washington consensus. It underscores the unfairness and inefficiency of the privatisation process. Most state enterprises were privatised before they were restructured and ended up in the hands of their former managers, the 'new oligarchs'. The paper also lays emphasis on the adverse effects of the opening of capital markets in the absence of an appropriate regulatory framework. Russia and many other Tacis countries became capital exporters, not a position to be in when one is going through major economic restructuring. It looks at the effects of the transition programmes on poverty and inequality. The second part is more analytical in nature. Its aim is to assess whether Tacis may actually have ended up making the transition process longer than it need have been. It shows how technical assistance programmes which were conceived for the developing world were not adapted to meet the quite different needs of the countries of the former Soviet Union. The paper expresses doubts as to the appropriateness, from the recipients' point of view, of putting so many resources into the energy sector and so little into social infrastructure. It looks closely at the teething problems experienced by the Tacis programme. The implementation of the programme was hampered by a lack of human resources which translated into inordinately long procedures and delays, including delayed payments for contractors. There w

Title: Alternative progress indicators to Gross Domestic Product (GDP) as a means towards sustainable development
Abstract
Assessing existing policies or developing new policy options requires indicators showing where a community stands, where it is going and how far it is from where it wants to be. Indicators are necessary in all steps of the policy cycle: to describe the current situation/problem; to analyse the causes; to identify possible solutions and analyse, select and implement policy proposals; to monitor and evaluate the policies and to communicate the outcomes at all steps of the policy cycle. Economic performance is generally being measured through GDP (Gross Domestic Product), a variable that has also become the de facto universal metric for 'standards of living'. However, GDP does not properly account for social and environmental costs and benefits. It is also difficult to achieve sustainable decision-making aiming at sustainable progress and wellbeing if welfare is being considered from a purely financial point of view. Sustainable development can be defined as "Development that meets the needs of the present without compromising the ability of future generations to meet their own needs". Therefore, in order to effectively measure 'progress, wealth and well-being', one must go beyond GDP. This requires clear and at the same time multidimensional indicators showing the links among a community's economy, environment, and society. [Yanne Goossens]

Title: Impact of the financial and economic crisis : Study on ArcelorMittal Galati subsidiary (Romania)
Abstract
This case study focuses on the measures used by ArcelorMittal to cut costs and avoid involuntary redundancies during the crisis in its largest Romanian subsidiary. The study aims to assess the effectiveness of the various measures applied to keep staff in employment and to ensure the company’s viability. Specific emphasis is given to temporary layoffs and compulsory annual leave schemes to all staff in Romania. The study also discusses the role of government in supporting flexible measures and, furthermore, the role of unions and the European Works Council (EWC) in the design and implementation of the measures.

Title: Danske Bank (Denmark)
Abstract
This case study demonstrates how Danske Bank, one of the largest banks in northern Europe, has dealt with the impact of the financial crisis. It also shows how it has coped with longer term restructuring requirements arising from rapid expansion and internationalisation of the bank, the integration of IT systems and the relatively high employment density in the sector in Denmark. As well as presenting the approach to restructuring at national level in Denmark, this case study looks at the role played by the company’s relatively new European Works Council in the discussions.
