Jean-Jacques Rosa was one of the first, and one of the few, professional economists to consistently warn against the hazards of implementing a single currency and creating the "euro zone."
The author of more than ten books on political economy, Dr. Rosa is an economist who is familiar with finance, public choice, and organizational analysis of firms and other institutions. He likes to apply fundamental but non-technical (although rigorous) economic reasoning to social and political phenomena.
Dr. Rosa was an economic adviser to the French Prime Minister, 1997-1999. He founded the MBA program and two doctoral programs in business finance at the Inst. of Political Studies, Paris, which takes a practical and broad-based approach to the study of economic, political and social problems; he taught at Sciences Po from 1978 to 2008 and is now a Professor Emeritus.
