What People are Saying About This

From the Publisher

“This volume makes a contribution to the debate over the Greek economy and its crisis, which has been long overdue. We economists are notoriously bad when it comes to diagnosing short-term developments and dealing with crises. The best of economics comes out when the focus is on trends, economic potential and how to improve things in the longer run. This book does that in an excellent way. It shows the way for a better long-term future of the Greek economy.” (Juergen von Hagen, University of Bonn, Indiana University, Bruegel, and CEPR)

“Much has been written about the causes and the handling of the Greek crisis. At long last, here is a book that offers ideas about what the Greek economy could look like if a number of conditions are met. Let’s hope these conditions will soon be met and a new growth model will be implemented.” (André Sapir, Professor of Economics, Université Libre de Bruxelles, Belgium)

“This is a seminal and timely book that reflects in depth and in substance on the nature and dynamics of the Greek crisis, as well as the implications of the manifestation of that phenomenon of socio-economic and socio-political malaise that has gripped Greece and the rest of the European Union. This work sets the stage for further research and reflection on the dynamics of democracy, innovation, and entrepreneurship for growth in Greece, Europe and the world.” (Elias G. Carayannis, Co-founder and Co-Director, Global and Entrepreneurial Finance Research Institute; Professor of Science, Technology, Innovation and Entrepreneurship, George Washington University, USA)
