European Competitiveness Challenges: The EU, Croatia and Beyond

In exploring competitiveness, Governor of Croatian National Bank Boris Vujčić examines European productivity trends relative to the U.S. and Asia, as well as productivity catch-up and divergence across different European economies, including the newer EU states. In exploring diverging trends in productivity across Europe both pre and post EMU, Boris argues that any lasting solution to Europe's growth shortfalls can only be addressed via structural reforms.
