“We are very glad that Prof. Weale accepted our invitation,” said
dr. Diego Ronchetti
, assistant professor in econometrics at the FEB. “As a prominent economist and academic, his views can have a significant impact on the way we interpret current macroeconomic data, and use them to create expectations of future economic conditions.”
In his lecture in Groningen Martin Weale discussed very relevant and current issue of the impact of the crisis on productivity in Europe and the US. Because the return of business confidence has boosted productivity, Weale expects the living standards soon to rise solidly in the UK, the US and parts of Northern Europe.
