Linking Future Economic Development to Jobs

NEUJOBS event

Speaker: Paul Zagamé, Professor at the University of Paris I, Scientific Director, SEURECO, creator of Nemesis

Venue: CEPS - Conference Room, Place du Congrès 1, 1000 Brussels

Secretary: Anne-Marie Boudou
Responsible: Ilaria Maselli

This meeting is organised within the framework of NEUJOBS, a major research project financed by the 7th Framework Programme of the European Commission, and will discuss the early findings of NEMESIS, an economic model that seeks to link long-term economic development and employment with structural policies such as RTD, environment and energy regulation and general fiscal reforms. The model aims to generate scenarios that will allow policy-makers to anticipate and prepare for the impact of the socio-ecological transition on the labour market. Participants will discuss this promising new forecasting technique to help researchers identify the main drivers behind non-business-as-usual scenarios. Moreover, we hope to grasp practitioners’ views on the future of employment in Europe and on the usefulness of such forecasting exercises.

Welfare and the Labour Market in the EU

Workshop organised by the CEPII, FEDEA and DIW in the framework of ENEPRI.

This workshop follows up on the workshop of September 2000.

National characteristics of the welfare system impact on the labour market performance by giving incentives (resp. disincentives) for labour supply and demand. At the same time, labour market performance influences strongly the sustainability of the national welfare systems. However, ageing, social dynamics as well as globalisation tendencies threaten the sustainment of the given welfare schemes and, therefore, force governments reforming them. Approaches are needed which strengthen labour market adjustment as well as beware social welfare objectives. The aim of this workshop is to provide the theoretical and empirical background of these topics, to analyse the international experiences and to look for adequate political strategies.

SEPTEMBER 2001

Ageing, Skills and Labour Markets
September 7-8 2001, Nantes

The forecasted demographic evolution will impact in many ways on labour markets in industrialised countries. Wages and unemployment, but also productivity, skills and retirement age decisions will be affected. Some segments of the labour market are concerned more than others. The conference will discuss whether these impacts will be important enough to warrant evolutions of wage policies and rules such as retirement systems or state interventions; whether they will be felt differently by various age groups; whether they will or not increase inequalities.

Papers for this workshop dealt with:

  • the measures of composition and structural impacts of demographic evolution on labour markets ;
  • the evolution of relative wages and unemployment rates between age groups ;
  • the evolution of the policy rules prevailing in the labour markets ;
  • other related issues such as retirement decisions or employability of old workers, etc.

PAPERS AND PROGRAMME AVAILABLE FOR DOWNLOADING

An occasional paper with policy recommendations based on the papers presented at this workshop will be published later.

JULY 2001

Simulation Properties of Models
Royaumont Abbey, near Paris, July 5-6, 2001

Macroeconometric models yield precious insights on the diffusion of shocks and national policies in an interdependent world. This workshop aimed at discussing the similarities and differences between a series of standardised simulations among a set of macroeconometric models. These models may be multinational, or national with an international environment accounting for some feedback. The purpose of the workshop was to reach a better understanding within the community of econometric model builders.

JUNE 2001

SPECIAL EVENT 27 June 2001

CEPS Brussels

Prof. Fiorella Padoa Schioppa Kostoris, President of ISAE, presented the ISAE "Report on the State of the European Union", with the participation of the President of the European Commission, Professor Romano Prodi.

This report is inter alia concerned with the mutual recognition of labour market regulations: Firms in any member country would be allowed to hire workers from another member country under the regulations of the home country. The report presents first ideas on how this idea could be made operational and what effects this approach could have on employment and national welfare systems. ISAE will also organise a workshop on this topic, foreseen for March 2002 in the framework of ENEPRI.

MAY 2001

Welfare, Intergenerational Distribution and Households: What Does Generational Accounting Tell Us?
25 May, Rome

This workshop was organised by ISAE (Instituto di Studi e Analisi Economica, Rome) in the framework of ENEPRI.

Generational Accounting assesses the financial burden of public finances on present and future generations. In this workshop the family will be considered as the tax unit. Family is modelled here as a nuclear family, where wage-earning children are taken as a different family even though they may be living in the parental household. Different types of families will be identified according to the number of children, occupation and education of the parents. This novel approach to generational accounting will lead to policy conclusions about intergenerational redistribution which are complementary to existing literature.

PROGRAMME

 

MARCH 2001

Social Security Reform, Pensions and Tax Structure
9 March, London

Workshop organised by the NIESR (National Institute for Economic and Social Research)

This workshop examined how social security reform affects the distribution of income, firstly through intergenerational transfers via the tax/benefit system and secondly, within a given cohort. Also, political processes that determine the tax structure are explicitly taken into account, for the political choice of tax structure may itself depend on the prevailing social security system.

 

FEBRUARY 2001
