After Greece: Europe’s Economic Imbalances and their International Implications

Europe’s leaders have promised a new and potentially contentious effort to coordinate economic policies and bring some measure of balance among their widely divergent national economies. Following the recent debt crisis in Greece and fearing the prospect of similar problems in other European states, leaders of all 16 nations that use the single euro currency have agreed to reshape the way the euro is managed. Join former Austrian Chancellor Alfred Gusenbauer, a Watson Institute visiting professor, in an analysis of how this new balancing act could play out in Europe and around the world.
