On the effectiveness and legitimacy of EU economic policies
AbstractFor markets, European economic governance faces a crisis of policy effectiveness, while for citizens the European Union faces a democratic legitimacy crisis. The introduction of the European Semester economic policy surveillance system has not resolved these problems. Policy guidance deriving from the Semester is not focused enough on areas of significant spillovers and on problem countries, and national compliance is often procedural rather than actual. This brings into question both the Semesterâ??s effectiveness and the democratic legitimacy of the EUâ??s new intervention rights, which allow intrusion into national policy-making. This policy brief was presented to the AssemblÃ©e nationale of France on the 19th February 2014.
