Joseph Stiglitz, The Euro

Here's Professor Stiglitz's new book, just out last week, The Euro: How a Common Currency Threatens the Future of Europe.

It's already creating a buzz. Stiglitz expects we'll see the total collapse of the European monetary union. He's an extremely eminent economist — and a leftist, of course. But it's amazing how this book contributes to the case for #Brexit, heh.

See the review and the Guardian U.K., good for a laugh riot, "The Euro and Its Threat to the Future of Europe by Joseph Stiglitz – Review."

ADDED: Also at the Guardian, Joseph Stiglitz, "The problem with Europe is the euro: In this extract from his new book, the Nobel prize-winning economist argues that if the euro is not radically rethought, Europe could be condemned to decades of broken dreams.
