“…The report draws inspiration and its title from the golden rule of economic growth, which requires that today’s decisions are viewed by later generations neither with regret nor resentment. The shared aspirations of Europeans for inclusive development have led to decades of success, and Europe’s development has been distinct. If they can learn the right lessons from the reforms in and outside Europe, its development will be distinguished. This would be good not just for Europe but for the world.”
