The Eurocrisis and the public perception
The eurocrisis rages over the continent. While European politicians try to find a solution, journalists, economists and opinion leaders interpret the next event on the markets. Some advocate a Greek exit from the Euro, others the collapse of the whole currency. At the same time markets react nervously to outlined doom scenarios which are being fueled by populists. How do markets, politicians and journalists shape public opinion? And what is the effect of negative scenarios on the European project? In 'Eurocrisis, how a Greek storm was harvested' former central bankers, politicians and journalists elaborate on the events in the Greek crisis between 2010 tot 2012. Keyspeakers are George Papandreou (former Greek minister), Giorgios Papakonstandinou, (former Greek minister Finance), Jan Kees de Jager (former Dutch minister Finance), Jean-Claude Juncker (former President Eurogroup) and Jean-Claude Trichet (former ECB president).
