Our Comment

"Jürgen is a leading figure in the world of central banking. He was involved in the European Project for over 25 years and was responsible for initiating the European ‘Stability Pact’ in the 1990’s. After his controversial resignation from the ECB, he is perfectly placed to give a thought-provoking policymaker’s view of the eurozone crisis."
