Descripción de la actividad

El seminario se presenta en honor al Profesor Jean-Paul Abraham, y ello en razón de su contribución a los estudios de integración monetaria europea, así como a sus investigaciones financieras siempre orientadas a conciliar el punto de vista del académico con la perspectiva del profesional de la banca y, en general, de las instituciones financieras. El seminario persigue aportar al debate sobre las actuales turbulencias que sufre el euro en la actualidad, aquellas reflexiones de las personalidades políticas y económicas que han estado en posiciones relevantes y, a veces, determinantes para el desarrollo de una acción correctora de las deficiencias iniciales de diseño institucional de la eurozona.   

A tal fin, se invita a dichas personalidades a manifestar sus opiniones sobre la viabilidad de la eurozona, las reformas que aún son necesarias, las lecciones que podemos extraer para la gestión de la política macroeconómica, y el modo en que la crisis global haya podido influir en las estrategias financieras de los bancos. Asimismo, el seminario pretende sopesar en qué medida se puede encontrar un equilibrio entre la necesidad de disciplina fiscal, la conveniencia o no de reestructuración de la deuda, sobre todo, del sector privado, y la necesidad de instrumentar estímulos al crecimiento.

Está dirigido a estudiantes de tercero y cuarto curso de economía, negocios internacionales, y otras titulaciones similares. De igual modo, se persigue interesar a los profesionales de las instituciones financieras y centros de investigación orientados hacia los asuntos de federalismo fiscal, unión bancaria, y, en general, integración monetaria europea.

 

 

The seminar is organised in honor of Professor Jean-Paul Abraham due to his crucial contribution to the studies and research on European monetary integration and financial issues. During his academic life, Professor Abraham always aimed at reconciling both the academic viewpoint and that of the practitioners of the banking and financial institutions sectors. The seminar constitutes an attempt to provide valuable insights into the debate concerning the current challenges that the Eurozone is facing. Instrumental to this aim are the political and economic reflections made by those personalities that have been in prominent positions at the time when measures had been discussed and implemented to correct the initial deficiencies of the institutional design of the Eurozone.

 

To this aim, the seminar invites such personalities to put forward their options a about the feasibility of the Eurozone, the reforms already made and still needed, the lessons that could be drawn from the management of the macroeconomic policies, and the way in which the global crisis had influenced the financial strategies of banks, and other financial agents. Further, the seminar aspire to assess to which extent an equilibrium can be found between, on the one side, the need for fiscal consolidation and the convenience of debt restructuring –namely on the private sector– and, the implementation of growth-oriented fiscal stimulus, on the other.

 

It is addressed to last-year students on economics, international business, and students with similar academic qualifications. Likewise, the seminar might interest professionals of financial institutions and research centers geared towards issues of fiscal federalism, banking union, and European monetary integration.
