Hide / Show Abstract

The persistence of a sizeable inflation differential with the euro area and a boom in the housing market represent the two most important risks threatening the dynamism of the economy over the medium term. This chapter discusses the structural and fiscal policy options which could ease these tensions. It will focus in particular on improvements to the wage bargaining system, ways to strengthen competition in sheltered sectors and reforms of housing policy.
