This monthly webcast provides the latest insights from TCB’s Economics Team for the Euro Zone as well as the outlook for several of the larger European economies.
In addition to our regular outlook on the European and global economies we will provide an overview of main labor market trends across regions and countries focusing on employment and unemployment growth. A special focus will be on comparing compensation and unit labor costs across European economies. We have seen countries like Greece, Spain and Portugal regain labor cost competitiveness over the past years and we will discuss whether this trend can help the southern European economies recover from the crisis.
