Monetary Union: Macroeconomic imbalances and prospects for reform
In Turin, a three-sided discussion on the future of the Eurozone
Campus Luigi Einaudi, Sala Lauree Rossa Grande | Lungodora Siena 100, Torino
2017 has left as a legacy to Europe a political structure more inclined to reform and a more favourable economic situation, and therefore a climate more conducive to a possible rethinking and reinforcement of the governance infrastructure of the Eurozone.
This is the context of the CEST event of 13 March, at the Luigi Einaudi Campus of the University of Turin. The gathering has a two-fold aim: on the one hand, it intends to analyse the role that participation in the common currency has had on the post-crisis dynamics in Italy, thereby demonstrating advantages and limitations deriving from such participation; and on the other hand, starting from the limitations that emerged during the crisis, it aims to provoke thought and share opinions on the reform about what could be undertaken to reinforce the stability of the Zone, in a perspective of growth.
The gathering will involve three economists – Francesco Daveri, Paolo Guerrieri Paleotti and Tommaso Monacelli – and it will be chaired by Francesco Beraldi, student of the Carlo Alberto College and member of CEST.
