Public talk & book launch: Europe on the Brink

PUBLIC TALK & BOOK LAUNCH - Friday 25 July 2014, 19:00 - 21:00

Europe on the Brink; Debt Crisis and Dissent in the European Community

Europe is suffering from a bipolar economic disorder. Financial journalists divide the continent into two groups of nations - centre and periphery - not by geography but by credit rating. Europe on the Brink is a critical investigation of the root causes of this sovereign debt crisis, and the often misguided policy choices made to resolve it. This much-needed book offers a heterodox economic perspective on the causes, symptoms and solutions of the biggest economic issue currently facing Europe.

With Tony Phillips, Coordinating Editor of Europe on the Brink; Debt Crisis and Dissent in the European Community, and Sol Trumbo Transnational Institute (TNI). Moderated by Alex Merlo (IIRE).

Free entrance

About the book: 

Nobel Laureate Joseph Stiglitz, together with two other finance experts, compares debt contagion in Europe with regional financial crises elsewhere, while Roberto Lavagna, former economics minister in Argentina, provides a poignant comparative analysis with his own country’s experience. Crucially and uniquely, Portuguese, Greek and Irish economists provide hard-hitting case studies from the perspective of the periphery.
