Last quote by Guntram Wolff

A directive is a nice first start, a nice first instrument, but it cannot be the final story, it's only part of the story. If the EU Commission contributed to that pressure by publishing data and publishing information, that would certainly increase pressure in the domestic debates massively.feedback

Guntram Wolff quotes

Apr 27 2017 - Christian Democratic Union of Germany

That is a very precarious message, which ultimately will not work. You cannot sell Europe on the feeling that leaving is painful. The one point where she was very clear, and very strict, was that we first have to finish the negotiations on the terms of exit itself, and only then talk about future relations.feedback

Mar 21 2017 - Greece

Dijsselbloem is widely perceived as a good chair of the Eurogroup who has exercised a steady hand.feedback

Dec 16 2016 - Conservative and Unionist Party

Jun 25 2016 - Populism

I think this vote has been a vote against open and integrated societies, quite frankly. And I think the sentiment in many other European countries ... would be to say, we will not counter that, we are so fearful, that we will basically try to counter populism by following the same road and be more protectionist.feedback

Feb 11 2016 - Single market

Well I think as always in these things it depends. It depends on what kind of arrangement is being found afterwards but one thing is for sure if there is a 'No' vote on the referendum on the day we will see significant market movements and we will see a very lengthy and painful process of renegotiation of the access to the single market but also of all other trade agreements with the rest of the world which the UK would have to renegotiate.feedback

Feb 11 2016

I think this is part of the factor but let me add I think the fundamental issue here really is that the eurozone is a strong player which holds the majority in EU decision making and those outside will want some safeguards and to some extent these safeguards should be given because the eurozone does indeed hold the majority in all the decision making processes.feedback

Feb 11 2016

Well look I mean for the numbers are very clear. First of all the UK benefits from the migrants coming from other EU countries. Second of all there's very few, very little welfare migration. The empirical evidence shows clearly people do not migrate to the UK because of some welfare benefits bur because of job opportunities because of other life opportunities so at the end of the day, yes I am in favour of giving some safeguards there but that should not be, I mean it is really a sideshow in my view.feedback

Dec 21 2015

I'm afraid we'll not get that much additional investment. The aim was to generate a lot of additional investment. I think we will get quite a bit of investment that gets reclassified, but additional investment is not yet really visible.feedback

Nov 26 2014

Public guarantees can of course help to give incentives for investments because the risk in a way is shifted from the private towards the public sector – but at the same time this means, of course, risks for the taxpayer. So it is not necessarily the best strategy, it depends very heavily on exactly how the guarantees are designed.feedback

Feb 25 2014 - Unemployment

We still have very high debt levels, we still have very high unemployment levels and all these things have to be addressed.feedback

Mar 05 2013

Latvia has made very significant progress in terms of adjusting its economy, getting ahead of the curve, being competitive.feedback
