The euro's life, while only slightly more than a decade long, has been riddled by a series of challenges and crises. The eruption of the Greek crisis in 2010 took European policymakers by surprise and forced them to design responses to a quickly deteriorating situation. Even though Europe has final begun to stabilize, the disparity between the prosperous Northern countries, especially Germany, and the plummeting Southern countries, including Spain and Greece, has exacerbated economic and political problems within the Eurozone. Amidst loud and frequent debates, solutions have been enacted, but the struggles facing this monetary union continue to develop even today.

The Euro Crisis and Its Aftermath was written to inform readers about the roots of this enduring European crisis and the alternative proposals for ending it. In four parts, Jean Pisani-Ferry explains the origins of the European currency, the build-up of imbalances and oversights that led to the crisis, the choices European policymakers have both addressed and ignored since 2010, and the evolution of the policy agenda and possible options for the future. The book is as much of an informative and analytical history as it is a discussion of solutions for a more prosperous European economy.

Rather than putting forth and supporting a thesis, Pisani-Ferry helps readers understand the past and present of the euro crisis and form their own opinions about potential solutions. This book is not intended to reach only economists, as time has long passed since European monetary unification was a debate limited to academics. This book is also for the policy makers searching for solutions, citizens of Europe enduring the consequences, and the international community that has felt the effects of an unstable Eurozone.

About the Author:


Jean Pisani-Ferry currently serves as the Commissioner-General for Policy Planning to the Prime Minister of France. He is also Professor of Economics and Public Management at the Hertie School of Governance in Berlin. Until May 2013, he was the director of Bruegel, the Brussels-based economic think tank he contributed to founding in 2005.

Review:


"I bet this book will be the source to go to on the euro crisis. That is to say, on the euro crisis until now. If policy makers have the wisdom, they will follow Pisani-Ferry's advice on policies going forward, and Europe will heal. If not, another book on the subject will have to be written." --Olivier Blanchard, Massachusetts Institute of Technology and Director of Research, International Monetary Fund


"Jean Pisani-Ferry has been an active contributor for several years to the debate on the euro area crisis. He has provided invaluable insight to those who were on the frontline of EMU's reform and had to act within political constraints. Displaying a rare mix of economic and political analysis and deep institutional understanding, Jean Pisani-Ferry's book provides a benchmark against which to judge the current and forthcoming reforms that will shape Europe's integration for years to come." --Marco Buti, Director-General for Economic and Financial Affairs, European Commission


"This is a brilliant book about the euro. It surprises with its refreshing mixing of history, politics, and economics. That is indeed the mix we need to understand why the euro was created and why it got into so much trouble, as well as how to repair the euro so as to safeguard its future." --Paul De Grauwe, London School of Economics and Political Science


"This is an excellent, well-balanced, and beautifully-written book on the euro-crisis, its causes, its on-going developments, and its possible cures. Though told simply and clearly, it has a sympathetic and sophisticated understanding of all the finer and more technical details. Required reading." --Charles Goodhart, Professor Emeritus, London School of Economics


"There is no one better than Jean Pisani-Ferry to tell the story of how a financial crisis emanating from the United Stated led the euro zone, virtually overnight, into a financial and economic crisis that continues to threaten its existence. This is a highly readable and clearheaded account of not just went wrong, but also of what must be done to save the European project." --Dani Rodrik, Professor, Institute for Advanced Study, Princeton


"No global financial issue is more pressing than the future of EMU. If you are going to read only one book about it, read this one. Jean Pisani-Ferry accomplishes something rare in this important book. He is wise and balanced while simultaneously being sharp and incisive. This is must-reading for anyone who cares about Europe s future." --Larry Summers, former President, Harvard University and former Secretary of the U.S. Treasury


"It is succinct and clear enough to serve as the best available guide to the euro mess for non-European, non-economists." --David Wessel, The Wall Street Journal

Book Description Oxford University Press Inc, United States, 2014. Hardback. Condition: New. Language: English . Brand New Book. The euro s life, while only slightly more than a decade long, has been riddled by a series of challenges and crises. The disparity between the prosperous Northern countries of Germany and France and the plummeting Southern countries, including Italy and Greece, has exacerbated problems within the political and economic union of the Eurozone. The North, especially Germany, has debated where to draw the line between doing whatever is necessary to save the common currency and what they have viewed as a charity bailout of countries who flouted the rules for a decade and suffered predictable consequences. Meanwhile, Southern countries such as Italy, Spain, and Greece have grown increasingly bitter at the patronizing attitudes of their partners to the North. Amidst loud and frequent debates, solutions including routes for increased integration and punitive policies and reforms have been enacted and discarded to a limited degree of success. The struggles facing this monetary union continue to develop even today. The Euro Crisis and Its Aftermath was written to inform readers about the history of this enduring European crisis and the alternative proposals for ending it. In four parts, Jean Pisani-Ferry explains the origins of the European currency, the build-up of imbalances and oversights that led to the crisis, the choices European policymakers have both addressed and ignored since 2010, and the evolution of the policy agenda and possible options for the future. The book is as much of an informative and analytical history as it is a prescriptive solution for a more prosperous future world economy.
