About this book

On June 3, 2015, the Greek Parliamentary Budget Office, the National and Kapodistrian University of Athens, the Democritus University of Thrace, and the University of Peloponnese sponsored an international conference to address medium- and long-term growth in Greece. This collection presents the strongest papers on the conditions required to revive and maintain economic growth. Leading experts cover almost every major issue identified in the latest literature, from demographic issues and proposals for export strategy to the need for innovation and structural reform. The combination of qualitative and quantitative approaches to assessing present conditions make this ground-breaking collection a valuable resource for a variety of academics, professional economists, and economic policy practitioners planting the seeds of Greece's future.

Reviews

“This volume makes a contribution to the debate over the Greek economy and its crisis, which has been long overdue. We economists are notoriously bad when it comes to diagnosing short-term developments and dealing with crises. The best of economics comes out when the focus is on trends, economic potential and how to improve things in the longer run. This book does that in an excellent way. It shows the way for a better long-term future of the Greek economy.” (Juergen von Hagen, University of Bonn, Indiana University, Bruegel, and CEPR)

“Much has been written about the causes and the handling of the Greek crisis. At long last, here is a book that offers ideas about what the Greek economy could look like if a number of conditions are met. Let’s hope these conditions will soon be met and a new growth model will be implemented.” (André Sapir, Professor of Economics, Université Libre de Bruxelles, Belgium)

“This is a seminal and timely book that reflects in depth and in substance on the nature and dynamics of the Greek crisis, as well as the implications of the manifestation of that phenomenon of socio-economic and socio-political malaise that has gripped Greece and the rest of the European Union.  This work sets the stage for further research and reflection on the dynamics of democracy, innovation, and entrepreneurship for growth in Greece, Europe and the world.” (Elias G. Carayannis, Co-founder and Co-Director, Global and Entrepreneurial Finance Research Institute; Professor of Science, Technology, Innovation and Entrepreneurship, George Washington University, USA)
