Greek Crisis Q&A
The Florence School of Banking and Finance invites you to join us for an online discussion of the Greek Crisis. Professors Evi Pappa (EUI), Christos Hadjiemmanuil (University of Piraeus), Thomas Cooley (NYU Stern) and Ramon Marimon (EUI) will be discussing the economic ramifications of the new bailout deal, before taking questions on the past, present and future of the Monetary Union.
Brigid Laffan (Director, Robert Schuman Centre for Advanced Studies) and Pierre Schlosser (Ph.D. Research at the EUI) have published a new research report entitled The Rise of a Fiscal Europe? Negotiating Europe’s New Economic Governance.
In the report the authors dissect the key negotiations and decisions made following the Eurozone debt crisis before exploring their long term and profound political implications. The report will be discussed in depth during an Online Seminar.

What has been the position of Europe’s leading financial centres, its ‘financial capitals’, since the globalisation of the early twentieth century? Financial centres are the nerve centres of international finance, a source of wealth and power. Over the last hundred years, most leading international financial centres have been located in Europe –within a changing international balance of power. This paper considers the development of Europe’s international financial position, from the height of the pre-1914 days, when it was the ‘banker of the world’; to the lows of the late 1940s, when it required American assistance; and to the resurgence of its financial power at the turn of twenty-first century in an increasingly multipolar financial environment. The paper addresses three main issues. First: how to explain the rise, persistence and fall of Europe’s financial capitals? Second: what has been the degree of competition, cooperation and integration of Europe’s financial capitals, at both global and European levels? And third, what can the past tell us about the future of Europe’s financial position in the twenty-first century?
