The Euro: Political Experiment or Thousand-Year Currency?

Wednesday May 3, 2017 5:30 PM - 8:00 PM
NYSSA Conference Center
Available as: Live Session;
Categories: Global Investing, NYSSA Event

Program Overview

The introduction of the Euro in the late 1990s was the fruition of decades of planning, and held the hopes and dreams of several generations of Europeans.

The work of European statesmen, politicians, and their citizenry now appear at risk of permanent fracture, if not comprehensive failure. Can the common currency survive the current political climate? Can Eurozone countries adapt to new pan-European realities? Will an intact Euro depend on fiscal union? Will the Euro thrive as a symbol of peace—after Europe’s most deadly century—or will it also succumb to the separate wills of nations? We will explore these and many other macroeconomic and geopolitical questions and points of view in the days before the seminal French election.

Features, Benefits, Values

This will be a lively and informed debate on the Euro’s long-term viability, with some tactical points that will be made along the way.
