The Eurozone: Is the Crisis Now Past?

International Roundtable

September 16, 2010: 6:00 PM - 9:00 PM

Despite the fears that Greece would unleash a domino effect of financial crises, the Eurozone appears to be in better condition than anyone might have predicted just four months ago. Greece did not collapse, the banks survived the stress tests, German exports are at a 20-year high, and there is a political will among the public in many countries to bite the bullet with austerity programs. Is the crisis now past? Back by popular demand, Adolfo Laurenti will survey the Eurozone and assess whether this new sigh of relief is premature or the calm before the storm.
