Breakout Session

Combining Economic Recovery and Social Equity in Europe

In Europe, politicians face enormous challenges moving from coronavirus crisis management to restarting the economy. Economic and social consequences of the global financial crisis have taught us that returning to the status quo with a strong belief in the power of markets and an emphasis on the role of the individual is short-sighted. Instead, during this recovery period, progressives must develop concepts for combining economic progress with social equality and favouring cooperation and solidarity over competition.
