Full text not available from 'Open Access LMU'.


EEAG’s 2007 Report provides a comprehensive forecast for the European economy for the coming year, with a special section on Eastern European countries. In addition, it addresses several important policy issues, including an in-depth examination of whether the features of the Scandinavian model can be regarded as the fundamental underpinning for the Nordic countries’ excellent economic performance in recent years. Tax competition, in particular the causes for diminishing tax rates in Europe and their implications for public policy, are also analysed in detail, while a further section makes a critical scrutiny of many governments’ penchant for “economic nationalism” and its consequences for efficiency and growth. Lastly, macroeconomic adjustment scenarios for some European countries are explored exhaustively.
