Of Debts and Denial: The Crisis in the context of the post-2008 world – Presentation at the LSE on Tuesday 6th December

In London next Tuesday? Perhaps you may want to come along to this talk. I shall be using the occassion to make the basic claims that:

  1. The eurozone, in its original/present form, could never survive the shock of the Crash of 2008,
  2. Greece was just as much of a problem for the eurozone as Germany (and vice versa),
  3. the future of the euro will depend on a radical redesign of its architecture which will simply not happen unless it is preceded by change in the dominant narrative concerning (i) the Euro Crisis’ causes and (ii) the global economy’s post-2008 predicament.
