About this event

It is still possible, both economically and politically, to find a way out of the Eurozone crisis if policy-makers separately address two problems; dealing with the legacy costs of the initially flawed design of the Eurozone, and fixing the design itself. In this lecture Luis Garicano will discuss how these solutions can be implemented.
