Pardee School of Global Studies, 121 Bay State Road (1st floor)
Join us for a lecture by Italian economist and journalist Carlo Bastasin, author of Saving Europe: How National Politics Nearly Destroyed the Euro. Bastasin is a senior fellow in the Global Economy and Development and Foreign Policy programs at Brookings. His work focusses on European political and economic analysis. Saving Europe reveals how the nexus of international economics and national politics pushed monetary union to the brink of a breakup, how that disastrous development was avoided, and why the long-term viability of a common currency challenges politics as we know it.
