CERGE-EI Media Highlights for December

The award of a second ERC grant, wages, education, the ongoing debate on the results of anti-epidemic measures, and the recovery of the Czech economy were all topics on which experts from CERGE-EI and the IDEA think tank commented in December. Our representatives attended a conference on labor market trends and a new IDEA study on the effects of insufficient literacy has also been published.
