FEATURED IN THE CURRENT ISSUE
At issue is economic growth. Is the eurozone in desperate need of a major conference on debt relief? Or would such a conference merely encourage more of the fiscal policies and lack of restructuring that led to the economic underperformance and excessive debt in the first place?
More than thirty observers offer their assessment, including Henry J. Aaron, Hannes Androsch, Michael J. Boskin, Charles W. Calomiris, Stephen G. Cecchetti, William R. Cline, Lorenzo Codogno, Bernard Connolly, Howard Davies, Barry Eichengreen, Mohamed A. El-Erian, Milton Ezrati, Jeffrey A. Frankel, Benjamin M. Friedman, James K. Galbraith, Maurice R. Greenberg, Philipp M. Hildebrand, Jacob Funk Kirkegaard, Desmond Lachman, Edward N. Luttwak, Thomas Mayer, David C. Mulford, Ewald Nowotny, Jim O'Neill, Kermit Schoenholtz, Ludger Schuknecht, Jeffrey R. Shafer, Hans-Werner Sinn, William R. White, John Williamson, and Criton M. Zoakos
From de Larosière to Rhodes, Mulford to Ortiz, and Herrhausen to Gurría, the struggle for debt solutions goes on.
