About this book

This book critically analyses the crisis of the euro currency from 2008 to the present. It argues that an understanding of this crisis requires an understanding of financial and economic crises in individual countries participating in the euro. It goes on to describe and explain the crises in four countries – Greece, Ireland, Spain and Italy – showing how they differ and together challenge the euro currency by requiring a varied policy response from Europe. Eurocritical is a guide for scholars, students and practitioners of finance and economics.

Reviews

“Roderick Macdonald offers a unique view on the European financial crisis.  Through detailed national case studies, he explains why the crisis unfolded as it did, not just across the Continent, but from one country to the next.  It is essential reading for anyone interested in how far European integration has come, and how far it still has to go.” (Erik Jones, Professor of European Studies and International Political Economy, Director of European and Eurasian Studies, Johns Hopkins University, School of Advanced International Studies, Bologna, Italy)

“Professor Macdonald’s work uses a large data set (based on hard data mining) and includes a wide range of parameters, information and approaches to analyze the structural problems and characteristics of the Greek economy and thus shed light on fundamentals and origins of the crisis, underlying the need to focus on them for the Greek economy to exit from the current difficult situation.” (Christos Triantopoulos, Research Fellow, Centre of Planning and Economic Research (KEPE), Athens, Greece)
