Literature Review: Policies problem for Economy

This “Ten Problems for Economy in the 2020s” booklet identifies ten relevant areas from very recent contributions put forward at academic level in the form journal articles, conference proceedings and students theses. Ten freely accessible internet references have been selected for each area and direct links are provided at the end of each chapter for own consultation. Our selected references do not intend to mirror ranking indexes nor establish novel classifications. On the contrary, they are meant to represent peer-reviewed, diverse and scientifically-sound case studies for vertical dissemination aimed at non-specialist readers. They will also be able to scoop even more references through the bibliography that is reported at the end of each selected reference.

Without further ado, these are the ten problems that we are going to introduce in this booklet:

  1. business, 
  2. finance,
  3. policies,
  4. technology,
  5. debt,
  6. labor,
  7. entrepreneurship,
  8. markets,
  9. wealth,
  10. growth.

Each problem has its own dedicated chapter made of an introductory section, a short presentation of the ten selected references and a conclusions section.

The final chapter of this booklet will report the conclusions from each chapter again in order to provide a complete executive summary.

3 Policies

THE PROBLEM — This new age of uncertainty will act as a drag on demand, and if it persists, long run potential growth will be lower. There is no evidence for an absolute decoupling of gross domestic product growth, resource use and greenhouse gas emissions.  Efforts to develop entrepreneurial ecosystems have proliferated in recent years, marking it out as the latest industrial policy ‘blockbuster’. Differentiated analyses of organizational change are needed with urbanization, deindustrialization and rural stagnation on one side, and green economy, specialization and massive digitalization on the other side.

CONCLUSIONS — In the year ahead, it is not foreseen a significant reversal of trade tensions or expected that policymaking will become more predictable. Entrepreneurial ecosystem concept is fraught with conceptual ambiguity and is predominantly (and rather crudely) used to promote ‘more’ entrepreneurship. In a post-growth context, the state’s policy priority of achieving economic growth would be replaced by the goal of re-embedding production and consumption patterns into planetary limits. Educational, economic, religious, health care or religious organizations develop different ways of structuring their decision-making. Economics is a field that influences public policy, policy that affects all types of people, so it is important that we have diverse views informing that policy. The struggle to create good jobs has intensified, with rapid urbanization, premature deindustrialization and rural stagnation accompanying rising inequality and growing political tensions. Growth in the hydrogen and fuel cell industries will lead to vast new and diverse employment opportunities. The current COVID-19 pandemic deeply shows the capitalist system’s weaknesses in a period of large crisis, for example, health management, large social repercussions and huge economic crisis caused by the significant decline of consumption. Circular economy concerns the distribution of material benefits that comes with a turn to a greener industrial society, developed under the European Green Deal and EU’s COVID-19 recovery plan. Coordination is required among monetary, macroprudential, and fiscal policies, to reduce the effects of the COVID-19.
