Prof Jean Pisani-Ferry, director for Programme and Ideas for Emmanuel Macron’s Presidential Campaign and professor at Sciences Po and the Hertie School of Governance, discussed the ideas that made the Macron campaign a success – and presented his latest report, Reconciling Risk Sharing with Market Discipline: A Constructive Approach to Euro Area Reform, a project led by 14 French and German economists that proposes six reforms to revive the European financial, fiscal and institutional architecture. Nadia Calviño, director-general for the budget at the European Commission, outlined her vision of the future of Europe, and the role that a modern EU budget can play in delivering effective outcomes.
