The Eurozone of Yesterday, Today and Tomorrow

July 3-4, 2012
Florence, Italy

Co-organized with The Euro50 group at the European University Institute, the conference titled “Eurozone of Yesterday, Today and Tomorrow” brought together participants to debate how the European Union in its current state of muddling through could readdress the inherent flaws of the single currency in order to prevent a break-up of the euro area and put the euro on a more solid foundation for the future.  The underpinnings of the creation of the euro and the single market were discussed at length and with overall agreement that the euro project was born with inadequacies. It was also noted that national politics remained the key constraint to completing a monetary union.
