Summary
The eurozone has lurched from crisis to calamity. With Greece, Portugal and Ireland driven to the brink of economic catastrophe, and the threat that other EU countries are soon to follow, the consequences for the global economy could be dire. In The Great Eurozone Disaster, Heikki Patomäki provides a captivating narrative about how Europe ended up in its present predicament and offers a radical new vision for 'democratic global Keynesianism' as the most viable way out of the current crisis
