The fine art of procrastination :
The Lisbon Strategy failed to meet its economic, social and environmental targets. Today Europe is still growing at a low pace. Employment has grown slightly, but at the cost of a increasing number of ‘working poors’, especially among youth and migrants. And the promised ‘green revolution’ of the production system is still a dream.
The EU2020 is so far a repackaged version of the Lisbon Strategy with no significant improvement on its major flaw. Without a serious review of the proposed institutional setting, the most efficient way to implement it is to throw it directly into the recycling bin.
