Presentation by Ashoka Mody

Presentation by Guntram Wolff

At this event Ashoka Mody, Visiting Professor, International Economic Policy, Princeton University, presented his new book: Euro tragedy: a drama in nine acts.

Blending economic analysis with political drama, the  book argues that the push for a common currency - the euro - has undermined the entire political project. It explores how missteps in Economic Policy have led to the impasse in Europe today and offers insights into the roots of Europe's current disorder, especially distrust of the political systems and elites that seem increasingly undemocratic to the European masses.
