goda förutsättningar på engelska The impact of globalisation has been positive for most of the world’s population. However, the economic integration of economies also accelerates change which puts increasing pressure on societies to be able to adapt to such change. We need to stand up for the clear advantages of globalisation, while making sure our societies have the flexibility necessary to adapt to rapid changes in technology and labor markets. These were the main conclusion at a seminar about free trade and globalization in times of protectionism, organized by The Society for Business and Politics in the European Parliament.

På paneldiskussionen deltog Therese Guovelin, vice ordförande för LO, Luisa Santos, chef för internationella relationer på BusinessEurope, Fredrik Erixon, direktör för tankesmedjan ECIPE och Kerstin Jorna från EU-kommissionen. Paneldiskussionen modererades av Europaparlamentarikern Fredrik Federley (Centerpartiet), som är ordförande för SPN.

gästerna i grevinnan och betjänten The participants were Therese Guovelin, vice President of The Swedish Trade Union Confederation, Luisa Santos, Director for International Relations at BusinessEurope, Fredrik Erixon, Director of ECIPE and Kerstin Jorna, Deputy Director-General for Economic and Financial Affairs at the European Commission. The discussion was hosted and moderated by parliamentarian Fredrick Federley (ALDE).

längd 12 år The wave of globalisation that spread across the world between the 1980s and 2010 dramatically increased the standards and quality of life for people around the world. Even so, we are seeing a surge in protectionism and criticism of trade and globalisation. A widespread view is that globalisation creates prosperity in emerging economies, but leads to job loss and stagnation in the West- a claim that stems from the misconception that trade is a zero-sum game where one side must lose so that the other can win. In reality, trade and globalisation have been a largely positive force for consumers, businesses and for society as a whole. Real wages have increased, prices have fallen, working conditions have improved and the salary gap between men and women has decreased. Economies have become more specialized which means that the quality of goods have improved, and that more people can afford to buy better products. The current one-sided focus on the losers of globalisation is notable, when they are by far outweighed by the winners.

anmälan föräldrapenning pappa It is pretty much business as usual for companies to be in favor or globalization, but it is more unusual to see trade unions expressing support for trade- at least from a European perspective. Therese Guovelin from The Swedish Trade Union was clear in her support of free trade, technology and globalisation in general. She argued that competition leads to increased quality, that growth is compatible with equality and that Swedish unions are more afraid of old technology than new. She did point to the risk that globalisation benefits some more than others, and that trade thus contributes to increasing the inequality gap. Change is accelerated by globalisation which means that societies have to become more adaptable. Kerstin Jorna compared the process to wild horses; if we exercise control over them, they can be made to run in an organized way and towards a common direction. If we let them run their course, they will create chaos and wreak havoc. The analysis of the European Commission is that globalisation needs to be harnessed. Luisa Santos from BusinessEurope concluded that politicians, civil society and businesses each have a role in shaping globalization- but that we should not expect trade policy to be a silver bullet for the wide range of consequences created by technology development and automation. Fredrik Erixon warned about the risks of casually blaming globalisation and trade for inequality and job loss, when diverse levels of education are a much larger cause of inequality than globalisation.

känsla i hjo ab Whereas globalisation will create both winners and losers in the short run, protectionism only produces losers. Trade and economic integration has led to improvements that are unprecedented in human history. The panelists agreed that societies need to adapt, that we need more flexibility in labor markets and a bigger focus on life-long learning. If we try to harness globalisation too much we will inevitably create more losers than winners.

The entrepreneurial perspective is being neglected in the EU digitalisation process

The digital single market is a hot topic in the EU right now. Sweden has plenty of confidence when it comes to digitalisation, which does by its nature transcends all borders. The government’s overall goal is for Sweden to be best in the world at using the opportunities offered by digitalisation.

Trilogue negotiations – striking the right balance between transparency and efficiency

A trilogue is just what it sounds like – a dialogue between three parties. In a European context the three parties in question are the European parliament, the European Commission and the Council. There are advantages to these trilogues; it’s a quicker decision process which can be used ad hoc with the three most important parties present. But the opposition is growing against the increased frequency, particularly because of lack of transparency that trilogues entail.

The recipe for a competitive EU

The success of the EU’s can be measured largely in the level of exchange in goods, services, people, and capital. The complete implementation of the Single Market is key. Much remains to be done in many areas, such as the free movement of services and labour, eliminating restrictive national processes, regulations and standards, and ensuring that common legislation is applied uniformly and consistently. As long as barriers to the four freedoms remain, European competitiveness will continue to be held back.
