This assessment indicates that the impact of the funds on gender equality will be rather moderate. The study also indicates that the “new economy”, after COVID-19, will be more skilled, digital and green.

Rasmus Andresen Claude Gruffat
Opinion by Rasmus Andresen & Claude Gruffat
While people see their energy bills skyrocket and their shopping cart get more and more expensive, there are energy and food corporations who, in the same period, have had unprecedented profits. It's time for the 1% to stop profiting at the expense of the 99%!
