Abstract

Economic growth is the main source for Europe's prosperity. In Lisbon 2000 the EU leaders promoted a further impetus to Europe's prosperity through a joint plan of action, called the Lisbon Agenda. The aim was to make the EU in 2010 the most competitive and productive economy in the world. Stimulation of knowledge, innovation and economic growth were the most important keywords. In addition, the economic development in the EU should be 'green' and ecologically sustainable. By increasing participation in paid employment, social cohesion would also be strengthened. It is now 2010, a time to take stock. The thematic section B of this European Outlook develops a broad concept of welfare by which the welfare effects of the Lisbon Agenda on the prosperity and welfare of European citizens are evaluated.
