Member of Parliament, Vienna Abstract Key Note
Die Auswirkungen der Wirtschafts- und Finanzkrise in Verbindung mit dem voranschreitenden demografischen Wandel stellen eine enorme Herausforderung für die öffentlichen Haushalte dar  in Österreich und weltweit. Die Volatilität auf den Finanzmärkten verlangt nach glaubwürdigen und umfassenden Antworten, die die Nachhaltigkeit der öffentlichen Finanzen und die Handlungsfähigkeit der Eurozone unterstreichen. Der Defizitabbau und das Einbremsen der Schuldendynamik haben für mich daher oberste Priorität. Die Rückführung unserer Schulden ist Voraussetzung dafür, dass die zur Verfügung stehenden öffentlichen Mittel zukunftsorientiert  im Sinne der nächsten Generation  investiert werden können.
Vice-Governor, Czech National Bank, Prague Abstract
How does the current sovereign debt crisis differ from other similar episodes in recent decades? In particular: (i) the debt arose at a time of peace and prosperity, not one of war and instability, and (ii) it involves the most advanced nations, not the weakest ones. In addition, the new currency system in Europe (a currency without a state) means that there are no good precedents or guidelines for resolving such a situation. Have these precedents been chosen correctly? Will they be? History tells us that sovereign debt crises are resolved by inflation, default, or a combination of the two. In the current sovereign debt crisis it seems we are gambling on another way out: bail-out, i.e. transferring the debt burden from the shoulders of one state to others and buying time. Is this a sustainable solution?
Chief Executive Officer, BAWAG P.S.K. AG, Vienna Abstract
Historically, financial crises have tended to result in debt crises. This time is no different. The EU and Eurozone will have to speed up and address severe measurements in a timely manner. Apart from the announcement of new austerity measures and the willingness to install debt ceilings, we need a more comprehensive set of actions: the question now is not only how to regain competitiveness of peripheral countries and to reduce economic divergence but also how to stimulate economic growth in the mid and long run.
Director, Europe Program, GMF - The German Marshall Fund of the United States, Berlin Abstract
The sovereign debt crisis is unlikely to be contained by the recent decisions to prop up the EFSF and the install the ESM as of 2013. The euro area is likely to be under severe economic and financial market pressure in the months to come. Political instabilities both in the creditor and debtor countries are likely to add to the complexity of the situation. If the crisis deteriorates, in particular if Spain or Italy come under increasing pressure, the euro area will have to face the question whether it opts for a susbtantial leap forward in intergration which will allow it to handle the current self fulfilliung sovereign debt crisis, to consolidate budgetary policies and to reduce economic divergence i the medium- and long-term. Or whether it shoulders the risks and costs of ending its existence in its present form by accepting a disorderly sovereign default and/or opting for an exit of one or several member states.
