Joseph Stiglitz - The Real Issues Of The Eurozone And How To Solve Them

2016-09-07 24 min Social Europe

In this episode we bring to you a conversation about the future of the Euro Social Europe Editor-in-Chief Henning Meyer had with Nobel Prize winning economist Joseph Stiglitz. The Eurozone crisis has been rumbling on for years and it is far from clear whether the many deficiencies of the currency itself and wrong-headed policy responses to the crisis can be rectified so the Euro is sustainable in the long-run. With a global backlash against elites and globalisation on its way it is make or break time for the Euro. Joe Stiglitz and Henning Meyer discuss the key problems of the Euro, what needs to be done to solve them and whether in the end an amicable breakup might be the best option on the table.
