The Decline and Fall of Europe: What the Future of the Eurozone Means for the Rest of the World
What if the Eurozone crisis was just the beginning of what’s in store for Europe? The currency and debt crisis may be the one grabbing the headlines these days but Europe is facing additional challenges that are just as destructive in political, social, demographic, strategic areas and in clinging to an outdated model that delivered the goods for a while but failed to adapt to a changing world. Is Europe doomed? What if it fell apart? Do Greece, Italy and others stand a chance? Will the Euro survive? Will the continent sink back into the instability and rivalries it has known for centuries? What does it all mean to America, China and others? Understanding these multi-dimensional challenges is key to understanding not only the current crisis but also where Europe is going and where it could take the rest of the world in the years ahead.
In his keynote presentations, Francesco M. Bongiovanni offers a unique, panoramic view of the intractable challenges faced by the continent today and which threaten to blow the entire edifice into pieces. Whether discussing the future of the EU, the debt crisis, demographics, immigration, the influence of welfare states, the geopolitics of the region and what the news of the day means for the future of Europe, Bongiovanni provides a candid and thoughtful view on what Europe—and the rest of the world—must to do correct the European imbalances that threaten to wreak havoc across the globe.
