EZ crisis: the answer is commitment

Thomas Cooley of New York University talks to Viv Davies about the debt crisis and why the Eurozone needs a credible institutional commitment and a strong fiscal authority. They discuss the role of the ECB, the banking system, ‘forced borrowing’ and the prospect of a two-track Eurozone. Cooley maintains that investment in education will be key to stimulating growth and competitiveness in the failing Eurozone economies. The interview was recorded on 15 September 2011.
