    Euro by J. E. Stiglitz (READ) I've read this book twice. It has a lot of good information, especially about the crack pot policies pursued in the eurozone during its period of crisis around 2010. The author is pretty critical of the economic decisions made to deal with Greece and the other countries that struggled. Overall, this is a good,

    Euro by J. E. Stiglitz (READ) Rarely do I ever leave a book unfinished. This was one of those rare occurrences.

    There are obvious problems with lack of cohesion and structure around the Euro. Those are addressed, but frankly, it doesn’t take a Nobel laureate to identify them.

    The majority of the book is a one sided ideological rant utilizing a lot of opi

    Euro by J. E. Stiglitz (READ) Today, many of the countries of Europe (France, Greece, Italy, Spain, U.K.) have an output/capita (adjusted for inflation) well below that prior to the 'Great Recession of 2008.'The Euro was supposed to enhance commercial ties, erode borders and foster a spirit of collective interest partly through economies of scale and comparative advantage. But in the 17 years since that currency came into existence, it has instead reinvigorat

    Euro by J. E. Stiglitz (READ) Anyone who cares to be informed when voting, needs to get a grounding in economic concepts. While this book is about how the Euro is a muddle that needs to be reformed or abandoned, such arguments need to be mad

    Joseph Stiglitz is a Europhile and so, cannot be dismissed as some EU hating lunatic (the kind of response that some Remainers indulge in when confronted with criticism of the EU).
    The accounts of the damage that the euro has done to many EU member countries makes devastati

    Euro by J. E. Stiglitz (READ) I am an engineer not an economist but I have always read widely about Europe. How is it that the Euro fiasco was allowed to proceed when almost all economists said at the time that it couldn't work. Why were their voices not publicised by the media in the 90s?
    This book is one of many saying "I told you so!" eg "the Rotten heart of Europe" by Bernard Connolly.

Today many of the countries of Europe France Greece Italy Spain UK have an outputcapita adjusted for inflation well below that prior to the Great Recession of 2008 The Euro was supposed to enhance commercial ties erode borders and foster a spirit of collective interest partly through economies of scale and comparative advantage But in the 17 years since that currency came into existence it has instead reinvigorated conflicts and a spirit of distrust while making economic ineuality worse and dividing Europe into adversarial debtor and creditor camps Interest rates on Greek bonds and several other Eurozone countries has soared peaking at 225% for Greece in 2012 The migrant crisis and terrorist threats have taken front stage despite the euro supposedly bring about closer integrationNobel Prize winning economist Robert Lucas declared in 2003 that the central problem of depression prevention has been solved Market fundamentalists believe that if the government would simply ensure that inflation was low and stable markets would ensure growth and prosperity for all this is especially true within the Eurozone s dominant power Germany Greece is now in a depression with half its youth unemployed the extreme right has made large gains in France a majority of those elected to Barcelona s regional parliament support independence from Spain and large parts of Europe have a lower GDPcapita lower than before the 2008 global financial crisis Even what Europe celebrates as a success is actually a failure eg Spain s unemployment rate has fallen from 26% in 2013 to 20% at the beginning of 2016 but nearly half of young people remain unemployed and that would be even higher if so many young workers hadn t left to look elsewhere for jobs WhyStiglitz s answer is that the 1992 Euro adoption failed provide support for the institutions that would make it work specifically the fault lies in currency pegs where the value of one country s currency is fixed relative to another or relative to a commodityContinuing Stiglitz contends that our depression at the end of the 19th century was linked to the gold standard with no new large discoveries of gold its scarcity led to a fall in the prices of ordinary goods in terms of gold This made it increasingly difficult for farmers in America to pay back their debts The gold standard is also widely blamed for deepening and prolonging the Great Depression those that abandoned the gold standard early recovered uicklyIn spite of this Europe decided to tie itself together with a single currency creating within Europe the same kind of rigidity that the gold standard had inflicted on the world Worse yet the structure of the Eurozone built in certain ideas about what was reuired for economic success that the central bank should focus on inflation ignoring unemployment growth and stability as well as does the Federal ReservePortugal Ireland Greece Spain and Cyprus were also importing than they were exporting with the resulting insufficiency of domestic demand depressing the economy One needed to make import substituting activities productive and encourage consumption of local goods In Greece for example the opposite Greece was ordered to change milk labeling so that 11 day old milk from northern Europe could still be called fresh and undercut Greek producersWhy were Europe s leaders even focusing on milk the size of loaves of bread and what OTC drugs could be sold outside of pharmacies as Greece s GDP plummeted about 25% Stiglitz observes that special interests eg big dairy companies of Holland appear to be behind the reforms and the chairman of the Eurogroup is the Dutch Finance minister Stiglitz also notes that hardly any of the money loaned Greece went to help the Greeks but rather private sector creditors German and French banksGermany holds itself out as a success an example of what other countries should do Its economy has grown by 68% since 2007 just 08%year a number that normally would be considered close to failing The US growth rate in the same period averaged 12% Stiglitz also points that prior to the crisis early 2000s Germany adopted reforms that aggressively cut into ordinary workers safety net especially those at the bottom Ineuality increased and real wages stagnated Germany is a success only by comparison with other nations in the Eurozone Regardless its strategy cannot be universally followed based in part on strong trade surplusesStiglitz also contends that the European Central Bank s monetary policy and the macroeconomic policies imposed by the official creditors on crisis countries have been largely responsible for the economic damages done Tightening monetary policy during the credit crunch following the 2008 crisis along with the imposition of sharp fiscal deficit cuts threw the Eurozone into a self inflected second recession in 2011 12 In Greece for example measures intended to lower the debt burden have left it burdened than in 2010 the debt to GDP ratio has increased from 117% when the crisis began to 177% today Many Germans insist it was hyperinflation that led to Hitler and so tend to support central bank policies that guard against that problem rather than the worrisome spector of joblessness thus Germany is the problem not GreeceSitglitz endorses significant debt write downs raising both taxes and spending by the same amount Stiglitz blames a hidden agenda of downsizing government for the latter and banning excessive trade deficits Instead he believes the Eurozone will further unravel He also criticizes the European Common Bank for resisting uantative easing yet argues that the most important effect of E has been contributing to growing ineuality which he says hurts growthBottom Line per Stiglitz The Euro has failed to achieve either of its two principal goals of prosperity and political integration European countries now view each other with distrust and anger
