The objective of this chapter is to discuss the productivity implications of the financial and economic crises experienced by euro area economies since 2007. The argument is organized in three parts: the first discusses the euro crises and policy responses; the second focuses on the productivity slowdown; and the third examines productivity convergence in the European Economic and Monetary Union (EMU). The main conclusion is that the currently available evidence suggests that the crises in the euro area caused neither the productivity slowdown nor the disruptions in convergence patterns. Although this may well be because it is ‘still too early to tell’, the crises had a significant dampening effect: the productivity rebound that often follows recessions is yet to materialize, thus raising severe concerns in terms of convergence, integration, and welfare.
