How will the price and supply of oil and natural gas influence the performance of European economies? This webcast examines how energy use may change in European economies due to increasing services activity, the possibility of natural gas becoming more widely available, the growing use of energy from renewable sources (wind and solar power), and how these changes could influence economic and labor market behavior. In addition to featuring economists from The Conference Board, this webcast features special guest Péter Simon Vargha, chief economist for Hungary at MOL Group, an international oil and natural gas company.
