Abstract: The economic development of the European Union is hampered by insufficient private and public long-term investments. This weakness is seen as a rationale for state intervention, and numerous projects are discussed and implemented to find new ways to mobilize private capital for long-term investments. Examples are the Investment Plan for Europe, the EU Project Bond Initiative, the Capital Markets Union, or, on a national level, the investment plan of a commission appointed by the German Federal Minister of Economic Affairs. For an economic evaluation of this policy approach, the following paper concentrates on the proposal of a targeted European savings account in the European Commission’s Green Paper “Long term financing of the European economy” from March 2013.
