Summary Vol. 28, No. 1 | January 2019

Summary Winter 2019

This issue of the Summary features a strategic analysis for Greece, analyzing the sources of the current turnaround in growth and the prospects for increasing the pace of the recovery. A public policy brief in the Distribution of Income and Wealth program updates the Levy Institute Measure of Economic Well-Being (LIMEW) through 2013 to provide a comprehensive assessment of household living standards in the United States, while a research project in the same program applies the Levy Institute Measure of Time and Consumption Poverty (LIMTCP) to Ghana and Tanzania to highlight the role of time constraints in an attempt to meaningfully inform poverty reduction strategies.
Working papers included in this issue consider the transition processes in the countries of the former Soviet Union; reflect on Germany’s dominant role in the European Union and its implications for the stability of the eurozone as a whole; explore what the euro’s German roots mean for the future of the European Monetary Union; investigate the drivers of long-term bond yields in Australia; assess the quality of statistical matches and enumerate the data sources for the LIMEW update; and examine employment trends since the Great Recession, with a focus on the narrowing of the employment–population ratio gap between black and white workers.
