Our new #EconomicResilience Index is out!

EU countries hit hardest by economic crises are still least prepared for the next crises – among them rich countries like Italy.

Why that’s bad, why they are also least prepared for the #greentransition and what to do - a thread🧵1/10 Image
Scandinavian economies are the best-placed to absorb, recover from, and adapt to shocks, with Sweden first in the ranking. Romania, Greece and Bulgaria are the countries at the bottom of the Index. 2/10
Some of EU’s largest economies are not doing well: France ranks 11 out of 25, Spain 18 und Italy 19. The breakdown shows: Divergence is particularly large in the dimensions of Education & Skills and Governance. 3/10 Image

Around the world #IndustrialPolicy is back on policy agendas, but analysis of these policies is limited by a lack of cross-comparable data. We're looking to address this gap through our #OECD Quantifying Industrial Strategies (QuIS) project. A short 🧵on what we're doing 👇 1/7
The QuIS project defines Industrial Policy as direct support extended by the public sector to businesses & aimed at 1⃣ promoting investment, 2⃣ improving competitiveness, or 3⃣ structurally increasing economic development. 2/7
Our methodology to measure & categorise industrial policy expenditures is based on this definition. This is a crucial step towards our goal of gathering and providing the data necessary to compare Industrial Strategies across but also within countries. 3/7

This is true. The one European country that is riding out this energy shock driven economic crisis relatively easily is France, which had an energy monopoly company EDF which also had the know how and scale to build nuclear plants, for the UK.
Doubtless it will cause apoplexy in some quarters to just say this, but the complexity of the coming #greentransition requires scaled investment and change that the private sector is unable to deliver in a timely or cost effective manner. It’s time to face reality.
Addressing the transformational challenge of #climatechange is analogous to fighting a war. Only at a global scale over a much longer time frame. A much larger and more complex task.

Markets can certainly help deliver (& EDF is a company), but centralised planning is needed.

The @EnR_Network held its first in person meeting in over 2 years in #Lisbon. After a first day of fruitful discussion on collaborative action between Energy Agencies, today, the network held a seminar on #energy and #water #efficiency at national and local levels.
The President of @EnR_Network, @nelsonlage highlighted the role of energy agencies in the #GreenTransition, as enabling agents acting between international and local level, to balance the three dimensions of the #EnergyTrilemma: Security Affordability #Sustainability
Sec of State @Joaogalamba described the vision for national-local level governance towards #NetZero in 2050: "energy agencies work to mobilize local authorities, economic players, and citizens to fight #ClimateCrisis, to foster cities’ pivotal role to deliver the #EUGreenDeal"

.@amitabhk87: The financial architecture wasn’t designed for #climatechange. There is a vast amount of capital available for climate change, but it will flow in when the risks are mitigated. For risks to be mitigated the financial architecture needs to be altered.

.@amitabhk87: If the developing world wishes to have #green, #resilient and #inclusive growth, it will only happen with concessional financing which would enable technology leapfrogging.

Are the contours of a new geopolitical formation—the DragonBear—characterised by deepening relations between #China & #Russia in key strategic areas, now increasingly visible? If so, what are #Putin's geopolitical choices?

From @vtchakarova

To forestall ceding more manufacturing output and control over critical #supplychains to #China, other nations must be prepared to rethink long-standing conventions about international #trade, writes Jeffrey Jeb Nadaner.

It feels to me that @RishiSunak needs some help getting the economy back on track.

Ahead of the autumn #budget2021, I've busted some economic myths he seems to believe...


Myth 1️⃣ : We are well on our way to recovery with the fastest growth in the G7.
Busted: Our economy was one of the worst hit, so we are growing from a low base. The IMF says our economy is still 5% below its pre-pandemic path. & our economy is projected to lag behind all G7 countries in 2024.
Myth 2️⃣: We need to start balancing the books because we can’t afford to borrow any more.

Busted: Our debt level is high, but what matters is the cost of financing this debt. At 6% of tax receipts, the cost of servicing the debt is the second lowest it’s been since WWII.

This morning @EUCouncil agree on historic 3y spending to kickstart the economy (750Bn€, w/ 390Bn grants & 360Bn loans) + 7y #EUbudget to invest in the long term (1.074Bn€). Before @Europarl_EN decides on this deal, let's see what’s in it: the good, the bad and the ugly. #Thread
Good n°1: Good news: there is a deal, and we are in July. I personally did not expect them to find an agreement before the fall, so having a deal in mid-July is already a positive piece of news in itself.
Good n°2: The overall architecture has not changed. Yes, less money will be invested than what was originally proposed (more👇), but we still get a reasonably sized budget (1.074bn€ over next 7y) + significant input of fresh money (390Bn€ in grants) that is good for #recovery
