Eurozone Dystopia – video presentation1
The Joan Muysken Lecture has been named after Joan Muysken, the first professor of macroeconomics (1984-2014) appointed at the University of Maastricht, when the university began life as a regional development strategy to provide work transitions as the Dutch government closed the coal mining sector down in the south of the country. Joan Muysken, a sometime co-author of mine, was the founding father of Department of Economics at the University and one of my long-standing friends.
I delivered the 3rd Annual edition of this series, on Monday, March 6, 2017 at the University in Maastricht. It was a public event so the style of presentation reflects that.
In the lecture, I essentially discussed the thesis outlined in my recent book – Eurozone Dystopia: Groupthink and Denial on a Grand Scale – that the Eurozone was built on flawed foundations and was always destined to fail.
The video includes the Q&A that followed. I wasn’t surprised by the tone and content of the questions.
