Open Europe blog: What have the EU quangos ever done for you?

Open Europe blog: What have the EU quangos ever done for you? | ECONOMY & Transparency | Scoop.it

Today’s expected announcement by the Commission that it has proposed a 6.8% increase in the EU budget comes as are finalising a detailed report looking at the EU’s bloated and inefficient spending, and how we feel the budget should be reformed. As a warm-up ahead of this report, we published a short updated briefing looking at the cost and effectiveness of the EU’s assortment of quangos and committees, the total cost to European taxpayers of which now stands at €2.64bn (£2.17bn), up 3.4% from last year and a massive 33.2% compared with 2010.

Irish Left Review · EU rewards Goldman Sachs for Greek debt scheme

Irish Left Review · EU rewards Goldman Sachs for Greek debt scheme | ECONOMY & Transparency | Scoop.it

In an earlier article, EU’s selective Lessons from Greece, we saw that EU Parliament’s investigation of the financial crisis (CRIS), and the hearing Lessons from Greece (ECON/7/02578), lacked the resolve to address the Greece/Goldman secret loan that was allegedly improper and exacerbated Greece’s ills.

Goldman Sachs’ explanations contained gaping holes, and that was left unchallenged. Perhaps the most striking example of it is the the claim by its spokesman at a 2010 hearing before the EU parliament that he didn’t know of the single most important restructuring of the deal in 2005:

Mapping European Economics Blogs — Social Europe Journal

Mapping European Economics Blogs — Social Europe Journal | ECONOMY & Transparency | Scoop.it

Economics Blogs are an important feature of the US policy debate and the European scene is slowly developing. You might have followed the recent discussion about European economics blogs in particular. The result has basically been: yes, there are a few European economics blogs but they are not very good at linking to each other, i.e. generating a proper discussion. And there is still a lot of room for development, espcially integrating more with the much more mature US economics blogosphere, which is also extensively discussing European economics.
