Political Economy of Financial Markets (PEFM)

Max Watson, a former senior official at the IMF and the European Commission, will discuss what lessons emerge from three decades of experience in handling economic crises, and how change can be catalysed in the face of deeply entrenched obstacles to reform. Some of these lessons, he suggests, were neglected or forgotten when the euro area crisis broke out.
