The conference EU and US Perspectives: Changing climates is the sixth annual high-level conference focusing on fiscal and monetary interventions in Europe and the United States co-organized by SUERF | The European Money and Finance Forum, the Center on Global Economic Governance at Columbia University, the European Investment Bank, and Société Générale.

Common threads are clearly visible in how the US and Europe are tackling the Covid19 crisis, be it temporary measures to protect the supply side or seizing the opportunity of green and digital transformations to support recovery in the medium-to-longer term. Both the ECB and the Fed have redesigned monetary policy strategies and the Biden Administration has reaffirmed US interest in close economic ties with Europe. Moreover, both the US and the EU face questions on how to tackle the broader geopolitical landscape. Behind these commonalities, important differences nonetheless reside and these hold significant implications in a world of changing climates.
