From the beginning, the European Union had a clear objective: to permanently consolidate peace in Europe after two of the bloodiest wars in history. This was supplemented after the fall of communism with a second priority: to become an economic power capable of counterbalancing America's growing dominance. The current state of Europe, however, has sparked a fierce debate on just how well the economy is really doing in comparison to other global actors - and whether Europe can continue to compete and maintain its generous welfare state. Thoughtprovoking, expertly researched, and brilliantly evaluated, „Europe at a Crossroads” presents the most informed discussion on the current and future state of Europe's economy.

The book is focused on perspectives of the European integration process in this decade, taking the current political and economic crisis of the EU into account. The chapters cover a wide range of topics ranging from the Central European economies to energy security and climate change issues. This volume, produced within UJK Research Field activities and edited by dr Cezary Szyjko, collects a series of essays, case studies and analyses exploring diverse European perspectives on interdisciplinary relations between European countries. Almost twenty international scholars and practitioners from seven European countries discuss cross-domain partnerships, cultural identity and political dialogue, heritage for sciences, European migration and mobility, and describe real-life case studies.

As Europe moves toward an integrated academic system, European economics is changing. This book discusses that change, along with the changes that are happening simultaneously within the economics profession. The authors argue that modern economics can no longer usefully be described as 'neoclassical', but is much better described as complexity economics. The complexity approach embraces rather than assumes away the complexities of social interaction. While the authors agree that European economics needs to go through major changes in the coming decade, they argue that by building on Europe's strengths, Europe will be more likely to become the global leader in economics in the coming decades. This fascinating and easy-to-read book will prove a stimulating and thought-provoking read for those with an interest in economics as well as politics, European education, and the nature of academic disciplines generally.

Written by most well-known and respected scientists, „Europe at a Crossroads” analyzes whether the EU is fulfilling its economic and social targets, outlining in a simple and understandable way the main issues facing the EU today and in the future. Drawing upon the recent official data and literature, authors seek solutions for Europe by deep analusis of its current situation and revealing how much more can be achieved in the areas of efficiency, productivity, and innovation. Authors document the EU's persistent economic underperformance in recent decades and examines the cause of its slower growth. They then presents a comprehensive blueprint of reforms for increased prosperity and deeper social cohesion, which addresses:

− The main economic challenge facing the EU: the impact of aging on public expenditures

− How to enrich the EU's policy and institutional environments to enhance business conditions for existing firms and new entrepreneurial activities

− Necessary structural reforms--welfare state, labor and product markets

− Fostering a knowledge society though increased investments in R&D and higher education

− The difficulties in implementing the Lisbon Strategy (major strategic goals for improving the EU's economic efficiency) and methods for meeting those challenges

− Challenges and barriers to education for sustainable development.

I never found any interesting article like yours.
It's pretty worth enough for me. In my view, if all
webmasters and bloggers made good content as you did, the internet will be much more useful than ever before.

Can I just say what a relief to uncover a person that genuinely knows what they
are discussing on the web. You actually realize how to bring an issue to light and make it important.
More people should check this out and understand this
side of your story. I can't believe you are not more popular given that you certainly possess the gift.
