Journal Club Discussion: Understanding and Resolving the Eurozone Crisis.
Camelia Miniou currently works in the Research Department on fiscal policy at the IMF and discussed the interconnectivity of banks and how that contributed to the global financial crisis. We really enjoyed her presentation, and many students were able to ask questions at the end.
