The Euro Crisis and Its Aftermath

Jean Pisani-Ferry

  • Jean Pisani-Ferry currently serves as Chief of the Policy Planning Staff for the Prime Minister of France. He also teaches at the Hertie School of Governance in Berlin. He was formerly the Director of Bruegel, a Brussels-based economic think tank that ranks 1st out of the think tanks of Western Europe, 2nd among all think tanks outside of the U.S., and the 1st out of all International Economic Policy think tanks according to the 2012 Global Go-To Think Tanks Report.
  • The author distills complicated economic concepts in a way that is easily understood by economists and non-academics alike. His narrative tale of the eurozone crisis reads like an unfolding mystery, keeping the story exciting despite its exhaustive coverage over the past few years.
  • The eurozone's crisis has sparked much debate among Northern members like Germany and France and the struggling Southern countries, including Greece and Italy, with no clear way out of the developing disaster. Pisani-Ferry comes at the problem from an accessible research and policy perspective while remaining practical, drawing experience from his current role influencing public policy in France.
  • Discussions of the benefits and burdens of being a member of the eurozone have been rekindled with the ongoing crisis in Cyprus and the recent introduction of Croatia into the European Union.
  • Dr. Pisani-Ferry's active platform includes regular contributions to Project Syndicate, the Chinese magazine Caixin, and various European publications.

New to this Edition:

  • The 2011 French edition of this book has been extensively updated to cover the events that have unraveled in the past few years.
  • The author has augmented his narrative to further his analysis and explanation for a global audience.
