New study: Changes in rental market regulation (§5.2) can have undesired consequences

Copenhagen Economics was asked to assess the consequences of removing or significantly restricting the so-called article 5.2, which provides incentives for private rental property owners to renovate the building stock.

We find that article 5.2 serves a valid purpose, and that removing it can lead to reduced improvement and quality rates in rental apartments, reduced pension asset values, reduced fiscal revenue, and a loss of asset values for cooperative residential housing.

New Study: The European economic impact of Google’s hyperscale data centres and infrastructure ecosystem

Digital transformation is a defining challenge and opportunity for the European economy, providing the means to reinvent and improve how firms, consumers, governments, and citizens interact and do business with each other. European consumers, firms, and society stand to benefit from the resulting innovative products, processes, services, and business models – contributing to EU productivity. Cloud solutions and wider digital services are key to enable this transformation.

However, these new services can only function efficiently and deliver the fullest analytical possibilities if supported by advanced, well connected, and sustainable digital infrastructures, such as those analysed in our latest study – focusing on the case of Google’s European digital infrastructures.

Today, Google CEO, Sundar Pichai, has met Finnish Prime Minister, Antti Rinne, and has referred to the findings of this study, which inform a broader business and policy conversation on digital opportunities for Europe, from building sustainable economic growth to achieving a carbon-free future.
