Mario Draghis, President of the European Central Bank, had a famous “whatever it takes“ quote more than two years ago , which seemed to have saved the Euro. However, the economic situation in many Eurozone countries remains highly problematic and the risks for a renewed Eurocrisis are considerable. Professor Brunetti will describe the current situation and discuss the main challenges coming up for the Eurozone.
Aymo Brunetti is a full professor at the Department of Economics of the University of Bern, Switzerland. Before 2012 he worked for more than a decade at the Swiss Federal Department of Economic Affairs where he acted as chief economic adviser to the Swiss government. He also heads the Swiss government’s “Future of the Financial Centre Advisory Board”
