Scope and topics of the Special Issue

Since the beginning of the monetary union, the European economy has experienced several difficult periods: the dot-com bubble burst, the subprime crisis, the sovereign debt crisis, the Covid-19 health crisis, as well as an increasing awareness of climate change. These crises have highlighted some limits of the European economy and motivated the implementation of new economic strategies and policies. In the late 1990s, high tech tools, particularly the Internet and increasingly powerful and fast computers, made their way into the consumer and business marketplace all over the world. The New Economy has been seen as a shift from a manufacturing and commodity-based economy to one that uses technology to create new products and services at a rate that the traditional manufacturing economy could not match. The subprime crisis that originated outside Europe has quickly propagated to many European countries pointing out the vulnerability of the euro area construction, induced by its financial heterogeneity. It has also proved the need of cooperation between the European Central Bank and the national governments to stabilize the economy. The creation of new Financial Stability Mechanisms and of the European Banking Union followed this period. The sovereign debt crisis has highlighted the fragility of the European fiscal policy design, while the recent health crisis and the increasing awareness of climate change in the last decades asked for a deeper fiscal solidarity and cooperation. These elements also represent the staring points for a revision of governmental, corporate or banking strategies and even of the common monetary policy, in order to encourage relocation of strategic activities, social responsible investments, “green finance” and “green economic growth”.

Considering the above, this Special Issue will constitute an insightful outlet for research dedicated to New Strategies for the European Economy, related but not limited to the following topics:
