CUTAWAY: VARIOUS OF THE CONFERENCE ON PROGRESSIVE ECONOMY 3. MARTIN SCHULZ (PRESIDENT OF THE EUROPEAN PARLIAMENT) SAYING (ENGLISH): "How do you explain to people and to small and medium enterprises that they have to pay their taxes while multinational corporations pay almost no taxes? Someone has to take the lead, and it must be the European Union." 4. CUTAWAY: VARIOUS OF JOSEPH STIGLITZ DURING THE CONFERENCE 5. JOSEPH STIGLITZ (ECONOMIST AND NOBEL PRIZE WINNER) SAYING (ENGLISH): "The Socialist and Democrats' agenda is so important.

JOSEPH STIGLITZ (ECONOMIST AND NOBEL PRIZE WINNER) SAYING (ENGLISH): "There are many factors that have led to the high level of inequality that we've seen in some countries, some of it is economics, but more importantly than economics, are the policies and politics." 8.

HANNES SWOBODA (PRESIDENT OF THE S&D GROUP) SAYING (ENGLISH): "There is always an alternative, the question is: which one we want?" 14. CUTAWAY: HANNES SWOBODA TALKING TO A COLLEAGUE BEFORE THE CONFERENCE 15. HANNES SWOBODA (PRESIDENT OF THE S&D GROUP) SAYING (ENGLISH): "We have to show that there is always an alternative, an alternative to the growing gap between the richer and the poorer. The more the richer gets richer, the less they spend on consumption, the less there will be growth and jobs, and therefore I think that to reduce the income and the wealth gap is socially but also economically important." 16.
