'Bahamas leaks' in a nutshell

30-09-2016

On 21 September 2016, the International Consortium of Investigative Journalists (ICIJ) published information on more than 175 000 companies, trusts and foundations registered in the Bahamas. The published data includes the names of directors and some owners of these entities. As with the 'Panama papers', these leaks may shine new light on the practices, policies and measures used by taxpayers and tax jurisdictions – as well as politicians, businesspeople and criminals – which render revenues and ...

The published data includes the names of directors and some owners of these entities. As with the 'Panama papers', these leaks may shine new light on the practices, policies and measures used by taxpayers and tax jurisdictions – as well as politicians, businesspeople and criminals – which render revenues and tax bases opaque, thus reducing tax bills and resulting in lost revenue for countries.

Benchmarks in financial instruments

25-04-2016

A benchmark is an index (statistical measure), calculated from a representative set of underlying data, which is used as a reference for financial instruments or contracts. Well-known benchmarks include the London Interbank Offered Rate (Libor) and the Euro Interbank Offered Rate (Euribor). The manipulation of those two benchmarks has sparked concerns about the integrity of benchmarks worldwide. The European Parliament is due to vote on the Commission's proposal for a regulation on indices used as ...

Secular stagnation and the euro area

08-02-2016

Several years after the Great Recession began, the euro area is still far from fully recovered. The international economic and financial crisis has pushed down investment levels within the EU by about 15% from their peak in 2007. Even though the near-term prospects seem brighter, high unemployment persists in many Member States. Some experts argue that the euro area, alongside Japan and the United States, is facing 'secular stagnation', a long-term economic stagnation characterised by a shrinking ...

Several years after the Great Recession began, the euro area is still far from fully recovered. The international economic and financial crisis has pushed down investment levels within the EU by about 15% from their peak in 2007. Even though the near-term prospects seem brighter, high unemployment persists in many Member States. Some experts argue that the euro area, alongside Japan and the United States, is facing 'secular stagnation', a long-term economic stagnation characterised by a shrinking work force, low demand, excess savings and low investments, despite low interest rates and deflationary tendencies. The complexity of the ongoing crisis and the diverging economic situations of the Member States participating in the euro area make it difficult to predict future developments, as there is no common cure for long-term stagnation. Some believe that if the demand side is spurred, it would help boost the economy. In this context, the European Commission launched a number of measures in 2015, among which the European Fund for Strategic Investments (EFSI), with the aim of mobilising at least €315 billion worth of investments in the real economy by 2017. But it is also important to improve the supply side, which shapes the investment environment. Furthermore, in December 2015 the European Central Bank (ECB) extended its quantitative easing programme (in particular, the asset purchase programme (APP)) until at least March 2017 as a way to provide further liquidity and stability to Member States' financial markets.

The International Monetary Fund (IMF): Rebalancing global economic weights

12-10-2015

Conceived at the Bretton Woods conference in 1944, the International Monetary Fund (IMF) officially came into existence on 27 December 1945 and started operations in 1947. Its primary purpose is to ensure the stability of the international monetary system – the system of exchange rates and international payments that enables countries (and their citizens) to transact with each other. The IMF has 188 member countries, all of which are represented in the highest decision-making body, the Board of Governors ...

Conceived at the Bretton Woods conference in 1944, the International Monetary Fund (IMF) officially came into existence on 27 December 1945 and started operations in 1947. Its primary purpose is to ensure the stability of the international monetary system – the system of exchange rates and international payments that enables countries (and their citizens) to transact with each other. The IMF has 188 member countries, all of which are represented in the highest decision-making body, the Board of Governors. This body elects or appoints the 24 Executive Directors of the Executive Board, responsible for the Fund's daily operations. The IMF has a quota system, which determines the maximum amount of financial resources that each country should make available to the IMF, what voting power it has and how much financing it can obtain from the IMF. The IMF provides several facilities for concessional (i.e. at no, or below market rate, interest) and non-concessional lending that member countries can request, normally with quantitative and structural conditions attached. In 2010, the Board of Governors agreed on a package of far-reaching reforms of IMF quotas and the IMF's governance. These would give emerging market economies bigger influence on IMF decisions. The reforms, however, have been blocked, since the US Congress has still not ratified them.

Cornerstone of the Commission's Investment Plan – European Fund for Strategic Investments (EFSI)

17-06-2015

In its November 2014 Investment Plan for Europe, the Commission announced the establishment of a new European Fund for Strategic Investments (EFSI), to bridge the EU investment gap. EFSI would be financed by an initial €21 billion: €16 billion from the EU budget in the form of a guarantee to the European Investment Bank (EIB), and €5 billion from the EIB’s own resources. Through a multiplier effect estimated at 15:1, a total of at least €315 billion would be mobilised in additional investment over ...

Through a multiplier effect estimated at 15:1, a total of at least €315 billion would be mobilised in additional investment over the next three years. The EU guarantee for EFSI will, in part, be financed through cuts in the Connecting Europe Facility (CEF) and the Horizon 2020 programme, as well as from the unused margins in the EU's annual budget. In their joint report, the European Parliament's Economic and Monetary Affairs and Budgets Committees backed the plan, but opposed the planned cuts in CEF and Horizon 2020, and called for extended parliamentary control over EFSI's governance as well as over the project selection criteria. In a trilogue meeting on 28 May 2015, the Parliament and Council reached a compromise agreement on the proposed EFSI regulation. Under this agreement, the cuts in the budgets of CEF and the Horizon 2020 programme would be reduced.
