Our Comment

"Dr. Tietmeyer is not only a renowned financial practitioner, but also contributes to the subject in an academic capacity. He has published over 100 articles and is a member of the Pontifical Academy of Social Sciences. Few are as well-place as he to comment on how the mechanics of the Eurozone and EU will need to adapt in the wake of the sovereign debt crisis."
