(SID) Lecture and Panel-Discussion with Jan Kregel on the Eurocrisis
Six Lessons from the Euro Crisis for Completing the European Project
The creation of the European Union has proceeded in stages, interrupted by external and internal events. Each setback has led to a change in the approach adopted by the Member States. The interruption caused by the current crisis is no exception. But, it may represent a crucial turning point if the lessons of the crisis are not interpreted appropriately. In particular the current crisis provides lessons about the difficulties involved in dealing with economic imbalances, whether at the regional or the global level. The experience of the Eurozone in providing asymmetric regional convergence of economies with different backgrounds and performance thus has implications not only for international reform proposals, but also for the kind of International Financial System that would provide support for developing countries.
