More than 2000 senior executives were surveyed for this comprehensive survey that examines the austerity debate, Europe’s social structure, industrial competitiveness and innovation, the opinion of the younger generations and a view of Europe from abroad.
“Europe has some of the most competitive economies in the world,” claims report co-author INSEAD Mubadala Chaired Professor of Corporate Governance and Strategy Professor Ludo Van der Heyden, “ but it also has some of the worst. The biggest difference is between Northern and Southern Europe. And rather than see Brussels as part of the problem in the EU economic crisis, respondents to the survey felt Brussels could actually be part of the solution.”
