Joseph Stiglitz: The Euro

In his latest book, Stiglitz, the 2001 Nobel Prize-winning economist, asks whether the Eurozone is united or divided by its common currency. Criticizing the European Central Bank for policies, such as austerity, that cause rather than alleviate stagnation, the former World Bank senior vice president and chief economist outlines three possible futures, showing what it would mean for Europe to make structural reforms, adapt a radical new flexibility, or dissolve.
