About this book


This study discusses and analyses the broad issues that have underpinned the current European economic crisis. It examines the experiences of three countries – Greece, Ireland, and Portugal – which reveal an economic system which lacks the adjustment mechanisms that countries with sovereign currencies take for granted.
