Is the Euro Finished? This is an edited version of the Leicester Exchanges Live Debate held at the Lloyd's Building on the 7th March 2012.
Is the euro destined to collapse, and with it the great post-war vision of European integration? Or are the outlines of a long-term solution coming into view?
Is the euro becoming an ever greater threat to Europe's common future, with currency union chaining together economies that are simply incompatible? Or has "the breakthrough to a stability union been achieved" as Angela Merkel recently claimed.
Is the price of the survival of the euro worth paying? Or is the prospect of a realigned, multi-speed EU dominated by an inner core of strong economies too great a cost? Indeed, if the Euro survives what will be the impact on the UK economy?
Professor Sir Robert Burgess (Vice-Chancellor of the University of Leicester) chairs the debate. Bill Cash, MP. Member of the European Scrutiny Committee and Chairman and founder of the European Foundation think tank, Panicos Demetriades, Professor of financial economics at the University of Leicester and Petros Fassoulas, Chairman of the European Movement UK are the panelists.
