Patrick Barron: The Greek Crisis and the Impossibility of the Euro

Published on Jul 2, 2015

Jeff Deist and Patrick Barron discuss European integration, which pits creditor nations like Germany against hapless debtors like Greece under the yoke of the Eurozone. With the Euro operating as a political project rather than a real currency, spendthrifts like Greece chronically find themselves unable to service debt. Greece, says Patrick, represents an example of Say’s Law in action and a clear refutation of Keynes’s belief that creating artificial demand via cheap credit stimulates production.

Think Greece can’t happen here? Look no further than California, with its public pension crisis and huge debts.

If you’re looking for a sober and hard-hitting analysis of what’s really at issue in Greece, stay tuned for a great discussion with Patrick Barron.
