Life returns to a more normal situation today as I have arrived back in Australia. But I have plenty to catch up on today so to free up some time I am posting the full video of my first presentation in Maastricht (March 6, 2017) as part of the 2017 Joan Muysken lecture.
The Joan Muysken Lecture has been named after Joan Muysken, the first professor of macroeconomics (1984-2014) appointed at the University of Maastricht, when the university began life as a regional development strategy to provide work transitions as the Dutch government closed the coal mining sector down in the south of the country. Joan Muysken, a sometime co-author of mine, was the founding father of Department of Economics at the University and one of my long-standing friends.
I delivered the 3rd Annual edition of this series, on Monday, March 6, 2017 at the University in Maastricht. It was a public event so the style of presentation reflects that.
In the lecture, I essentially discussed the thesis outlined in my recent book – Eurozone Dystopia: Groupthink and Denial on a Grand Scale – that the Eurozone was built on flawed foundations and was always destined to fail.
The video includes the Q&A that followed. I wasn’t surprised by the tone and content of the questions.
The blog will return to normal tomorrow.
That is enough for today!
