The Euro crisis: The long view

The Euro crisis never seems to end. One reason why Europe is chronically unable to draw a line under its crisis is a failure to understand how it got into that crisis in the first place. In this lecture Professor Eichengreen takes a long view of events, starting with the birth of the European Union and advent of the euro and concluding with recommendations for resolving the crisis.

Professor Eichengreen is visiting ANU with the support of The Sir Roland Wilson Foundation; The Centre for Economic History in the Research School of Economics; the Crawford School of Public Policy; and the Economics Society of Australia.
