Joseph Stiglitz, Nobel Prize-winner and one of the most influential economists in the world today, is returning to the John Adams. He will speak about his new book The Euro: How a Common Currency Threatens the Future of Europe. As recent events in the U.K. have shown, unity within the EU has been replaced by dissent. Stiglitz argues that this is a direct result of the fundamental flaws inherent in the euro project: money relentlessly abandons the weaker member states and flows to the strong, with debt accumulating in a few ill-favored countries like Greece. The question then is: can the euro be saved? Stiglitz will lay bare the reasons why Europe is condemned to unending stagnation, but will also outline future scenario’s for reform. Join us for an evening with, as Paul Krugman puts it, “an insanely great economist”.
Joseph Stiglitz’s new book will be translated into Dutch as De euro – Hoe de gemeenschappelijke munt de toekomst van Europa bedreigt by Uitgeverij Athenaeum, with a foreword by economist Robert Went. The book will be published on 20 September.
