Following the success of the first SPERI book launch of Capital by John Lanchester in February of this year, we’re delighted to announce that we’ll be launching the paperback edition of Europe’s Deadlock: How the Euro Crisis could be solved – and why it won’t happen by David Marsh CBE (Chairman of the Official Monetary and Financial Institutions Forum (OMFIF) and former Financial Times journalist) here at Sheffield.The event which will take place at a later date than originally advertised due to a clash in David’s busy schedule, will now take place on Wednesday 20 November 2013 at 18.00 in St Georges Church, University of Sheffield.
In this short, fiercely argued book, David Marsh explains how five years of continuous crisis management have not only failed to resolve the Eurozone’s problems but actually made things worse.
Simon Bulmer (Professor of European Politics, University of Sheffield) and Lucia Quaglia (Professor of Political Science, University of York) will give their reactions to the book and then members of the audience will have their chance to ask David questions.
Reactions to the book:
“A concise and devastating analysis…A must-read for all in the world of finance.” – Lord (Meghnad) Desai, Emeritus Professor of Economics, London School of Economics and Political Science
“His latest book, Europe’s Deadlock, makes a hard-hitting case against ‘muddled thinking, lack of imagination and straightforward incompetence on the part of the politicians and technocrats charged with policing the single currency’.”- Ferdinando Giugliano, Financial Times
“The euro crisis is a moving target, and only someone with David Marsh’s remarkable instincts has the remotest chance of hitting it. The book is a bull’s eye.” – Professor Barry Eichengreen
“Marsh is an expert chronicler of European monetary union, and his analysis deserves serious consideration.” – George Soros
