Investment and Investment Finance in Europe
Source: European Investment Bank
From Executive Summary:
Investment and Investment Finance in Europe responds to the need for a better understanding of the impact that the crisis has had on investment in Europe, and of what can be done to put Europe back on to a sustainable growth path. By undertaking our own research and working with leading academic institutions, we assess how the crisis has impacted investment across the non-financial sector, in small and medium-sized enterprises (SMEs), in infrastructure, and in research and development and innovation. We explain why and where investment has declined, looking at the impact of structural imbalances, policy uncertainty, new capital requirements for banks and the fragmentation of Europe's financial markets. In terms of policy options, we warn against poorly targeted responses and provide, instead, support for key policy interventions at the European level.
