30 January 2012
Janis A. Emmanouilidis (Director of Studies) and Fabian Zuleeg (Chief Executive and Chief Economist)

In early 2012 the situation looks better than it has for a while, but the crisis recovery still remains very fragile. In this Commentary, Fabian Zuleeg and Janis A. Emmanouilidis argue that the euro zone is caught in a Catch 22, as multiple parallel crises often require contradictory responses. National reform efforts and fiscal prudence are indispensable but they do not produce a decisive break from the downward spiral.

20 December 2011
Janis A. Emmanouilidis (Director of Studies) and Fabian Zuleeg (Chief Executive and Chief Economist)

Steps towards establishing a 'fiscal union' may not only convince and enable the European Central Bank (ECB) to act as a temporary 'buyer of last resort', but also prepare the political ground for two major innovations: the need to balance austerity and growth in the framework of a 'New Deal', and the introduction of some form of (temporary) debt collateralisation, argue Janis A. Emmanouilidis and Fabian Zuleeg in this EPC Commentary.
