Warwick/RIPE Debate 2012

The 2012 debate was on Trouble in the Eurozone: Whose Crisis? and featured Professor Brigitte Young (Münster), Professor Magnus Ryner (Oxford Brookes) and Dr Ben Clift (Warwick). Listen to the podcasts from the event via the Knowledge Centre

A pre-debate interview with the first two of these speakers is available here. In her recent article 'The Truth About the Eurozone Crisis' Prof. Young has argued that Merkel and Sarkozy have not acted to save the peripheral countries but their own national banking structures - something the interview goes into in more detail.

Another pre-debate interview, this time with the third speaker, Dr. Clift, discusses the political economy of France, Sarzoky and the Eurozone crisis. Much of this draws on his recent article 'Comparative Capitalisms, Ideational Political Economy and French Post-Dirigiste Responses to the Global Financial Crisis'.
