A European atlas of economic success and failure

Zsolt Darvas, Jan Mazza and Catarina Midoes, (2019), “A European atlas of economic success and failure”, Bruegel, 3 June

Economic growth was diverse across EU regions, yet it is crucial to control for region-specific factors in assessing growth performance. We find that there are rather successful regions in many EU countries, suggesting that the EU can provide a good framework for growth. Yet the worst performers are more concentrated in some countries, suggesting that country-specific factors can play a major role in regional development.
