New Publication* Greece and the Euro: From Crisis to Recovery
The eight-year adjustment program followed by Greece in the aftermath of the 2010 crisis was concluded in the summer of 2018. The program was associated with the deepest and longest recession in Greece’s post war history.
While the Greek economy appeared to be on a path to a partial recovery after 2017, in 2020 it was hit by another major negative shock, that of Covid-19, which has caused a further deep international recession.
|This e-book contains a broad selection of papers examining the economic, political and institutional pre-conditions for a sustained recovery of the Greek economy, based on the presentations of the contributors at two events. The Karamanlis Chair on Hellenic and European Studies at the Fletcher School of Tufts University and the Hellenic Observatory at the London School of Economics organized a workshop at LSE on December 14, 2018 and a conference on Greece and the Euro: From Crisis to Recovery, at Tufts University, on April 12, 2019, with financial support from the Onassis Foundation. |
These events were organised by Professor George Alogoskoufis, as Karamanlis Chair, Fletcher School, and Professor Kevin Featherstone, Venizelos Chair, London School of Economics, who act as co-editors of this e-book.
With ramifications for both Greece and the Euro-Area as a whole, the contributions consider the constraints that derive from the structural linkages between the domestic and the European levels. While concerned with the core economic agenda, they place it within its political, social, and institutional contexts in order to have a more complete assessment. They ask what scope there is for economic recovery in Greece, the priorities that need to be set, and the prospects for their attainment.
