9780815721963: Saving Europe: Anatomy of a Dream

Carlo Bastasin, an economist and journalist, reveals the unknown events that have happened behind the scenes in European capitals during the ongoing financial crisis, beginning in 2008 with the collapse of major financial institutions. He argues that the crisis in the euro-zone has a political origin in the abuses of national politics unable to cope with the pressure of globalization. Moreover, the crisis is reinforced even now by the obstinate defense of national prerogatives in politics and finance and by the lack of commitment for shared or supranational sovereignty. While the consensus view is that monetary union was a flawed project and must be amended, Bastasin shows that the failures have to do almost entirely with national opportunism —not only in Greece but everywhere, not least in Germany.
Saving Europe is the first major book on these momentous developments and their likely ramifications. Bastasin's compelling work is an engrossing historical chronicle, weaving moments of high drama with individual personalities on the world stage. Germany chancellor Angela Merkel, French president Nicolas Sarkozy, and British prime minister Gordon Brown play central roles. This is also a scholarly attempt to make larger sense of what happened —and what could happen next. Given the critical role and importance of Europe within the world economy as well as growing speculation that the euro might disappear, this is essential reading for anyone trying to grasp international economics. Just as important, it is a fascinating tale of people, personalities, and power. There is no other book like it.

About the Author:

Carlo Bastasin, an economist and a journalist, is currently a nonresident senior fellow in Foreign Policy Studies and Global Economy and Development at the Brookings Institution. A leading commentator for the Italian daily Il Sole-24 Ore, from 2009 to 2010, he was a visiting fellow at the Peterson Institute for International Economics.

Review:

Financial Times: Carlo Bastasin does an admirable job in analysing the eurozone's economic challenges and is a sure-footed guide through the seemingly endless European Union summit meetings that were supposed to resolve them. He also has an eye for the human detail that makes his sad account of institutional muddle surprisingly compelling.

Corriere della Sera: A reconstruction that may be considered definitive. Revelations on the European negotiations are written with talent and go hand in hand with no-esoteric economic analysis and with the right amount of realism to reach the political substance.

Svenska Dagbladet: Anyone looking for general knowledge and deeper understanding of the crisis, I can recommend a formidable analysis by Carlo Bastasin: Saving Europe. The author is a very unusual combination of a qualified economist and driven journalism.

Marco Onado (Bocconi University): In order to understand the complexity of the European crisis, we need three kind of interpretations: political, economic and historical. In his book, Saving Europe, Bastasin has the rare ability to use them all with great rigor, and this gives us a thorough and original analysis, that - unlike many books published on the crisis in recent years - is now at least as valid and alive as at the time when the book was written.

Olli Rehn (EU Commissioner): my favorite is Carlo Bastasin's "Saving Europe". It is based on a very sound understanding of the economics and politics of the euro and it is well researched. Bloomberg's readers' list. Saving Europe among the best books of 2012

"A splendid book."— Il Sole 24 Ore



"Bastasin's book is worth reading for its detailed political narrative of the eurozone crisis to date, focusing on the interaction among decision-makers in Europe's capitals."— Foreign Affairs



"All heads of government in the EU should be compelled to read it."— Europe's World

Descrizione libro BROOKINGS INSTITUTION, United States, 2012. Hardback. Condizione libro: New. Language: English . This book usually ship within 10-15 business days and we will endeavor to dispatch orders quicker than this where possible. Brand New Book. Three times in the few years since the global financial crisis erupted, the euro has come close to extinction, endangering both the world economy and history s most ambitious project in shared sovereignty. Yet each time, the case for a common currency proved to be more compelling than its weaknesses, and the euro survived.Saving Europe reveals how the nexus of international economics and national politics pushed monetary union to the brink of a breakup, how that disastrous development was avoided, and why the long-term viability of a common currency challenges politics as we know it. Carlo Bastasin reveals and analyses what has been happening behind the scenes in European negotiations since the financial crisis began with the collapse of major financial institutions in 2008. He argues that the crisis in the euro zone actually has a political origin, having emerged from the self-interested abuses of national politics.Moreover, the crisis is reinforced even now by the obstinate defence of national prerogatives in politics and finance as well as by the lack of commitment for shared or supranational sovereignty. While the prevalent view is that monetary union was a flawed project from the start and is in need of amending, Bastasin shows that the failures have to do almost entirely with national opportunism -not only in Greece but in most countries, including Germany -and concludes that the crisis will lead to Europe s political union. Bastasin s work is an engrossing historical chronicle, interweaving moments of high drama with individual personalities on the world stage.German Chancellor Angela Merkel, French President Nicolas Sarkozy, and national and European central bankers, among others, play key roles. Saving Europe is also a rigorous attempt to make larger sense of what has happened in the euro zone and what might happen next. Given the central importance of Europe within the fragile world economy as well as growing speculation that the euro might disappear, this is essential reading for anyone trying to grasp international economics and politics. Just as important, it is a compelling tale of people, personalities, power, and money. There is no other book like it. Codice libro della libreria BZE9780815721963
