Mark Blyth is Eastman Professor of Political Economy and faculty fellow at the Watson Institute for International and Public Affairs.

This summer's Greek crisis threw the future of Europe's young currency into doubt once again. Many doubt that its combination of austerity budgets and unpopular reforms can restart growth and save the Euro. In this talk Professor Blyth examines the different possible futures of the Euro, suggesting that the real threats to its long term existence are political rather than economic.
