The World economy was showing real signs of recovery from the devastating impact of the 2007/08 global financial crisis, when a second crisis struck in 2010. The Eurozone crisis is not just a regional problem. It is having a dramatic impact on real output and employment in Europe, but is also having a chilling effect on world trade. Despite recent measures to stabilise the debt position of a number of member countries, the crisis is far from resolved. This Lecture will address the origins of the Eurozone crisis, its economic impact, and policy interventions aimed at stabilizing the single currency. Possible end games, which range from exit of one or more currencies and a collapse of the monetary union, through to full fiscal and monetary union, will be explored. All plausible outcomes will have consequences for the world economy and harbour the potential for very real disruption to world trade and capital markets.
