    Greece | ZEW President | Tax revenues

    In guest commentary for the German newspaper "Frankfurter Allgemeine Zeitung" published this morning, the president of the Centre for European Economic Research (ZEW), Professor Clemens Fuest, urged that the costs of the new bailout package for Greece would have to be made transparent for German taxpayers. Unlike in the previous aid programmes, the vote on the new bailout package for Greece, taken in the German parliament, will not be a matter of loans, says Fuest, but rather of transfers - i. e. money that will not be returned. The programme therefore marks a fundamental turning point in the eurozone - the venture into the transfer union.

    Heinz König Young Scholar Award | ZEW Summer Workshop

    Stefano Carattini from the Haute Ecole de Gestion de Genève, Switzerland, is the 2015 recipient of the Heinz König Young Scholar Award of the Mannheim Centre for European Economic Research (ZEW). The jury's decision indicates their recognition of the excellent research carried out by Carattini into the effect of a pay-per-bag tax on household waste on the produced amount of waste. By looking at the influence of such taxation on the behaviour of households and at the acceptability of such measures, Carattini has made an important contribution to the debate on the impact of fiscal policy on tackling environmental issues and promoting a sustainable economy.
