內容簡介


諾貝爾經濟學獎得主Joseph Stiglitz最新作品,為搖搖欲墜的歐元區找解方,使歐洲甚至全世界免於下一個毀滅。

2008年的全球金融危機在2010年變形為"歐元危機",且越演越烈。歐洲19國形成的歐元區,因為經濟停滯與債務危機而搖搖欲墜。某些國家經濟蕭條數年,但更糟糕的是歐元區各國因為一次次的緊急事件而失速擱淺,最顯著的莫過於希臘。

諾貝爾經濟學獎得主,同時也是暢銷書作者Joseph Stiglitz在本書中反對樽節措施,並提供一連串使歐洲遠離痛苦的計畫,意圖拯救歐陸甚至全世界免於下一個毀滅。

建構歐元的人以為它可以團結歐洲並促進繁榮,其結果卻是相反,這樣的危機凸顯了歐元的缺點。這麼多國家共用一種貨幣,這種意圖改變基本架構的挑戰,所得到的直接結果就是歐洲經濟的停滯與毫無前景。因為歐元先天不良,經濟整合的速度快過政治整合,導致歐元區後天失調。Stiglitz告訴我們,目前歐元的結構如何促成了分化而非團結。他提問:能救得了歐元嗎?

作者層層揭露歐洲央行以獨尊通膨這樣誤導的措施,並進一步解釋歐元區的政策(特別是對面臨危機的國家)如何更加暴露了它在設計上的瑕疵,因此他勾勒三個可能的解決方案:1. 歐元區結構做基本的改造以及強制會員國實施政策2. 將單一貨幣的歐元實驗妥善處理至終了3. 設計出暱稱為"彈性歐元"這個大膽而嶄新的體系。

不要以為我們與歐元無關,世界經濟在全球化的運作下,使得這個課題與我們息息相關,因此閱讀Stiglitz這本新作是迫切且必要的。

The Nobel Prize–winning economist and best-selling author explains why saving Europe may mean abandoning the euro.

In 2010, the 2008 global financial crisis morphed into the “eurocrisis.” It has not abated. The 19 countries of Europe that share the euro currency─the eurozone─have been rocked by economic stagnation and debt crises. Some countries have been in depression for years while the governing powers of the eurozone have careened from emergency to emergency, most notably in Greece.

In The Euro, Nobel Prize–winning economist and best-selling author Joseph E. Stiglitz dismantles the prevailing consensus around what ails Europe, demolishing the champions of austerity while offering a series of plans that can rescue the continent─and the world─from further devastation.
Hailed by its architects as a lever that would bring Europe together and promote prosperity, the euro has done the opposite. As Stiglitz persuasively argues, the crises revealed the shortcomings of the euro. Europe’s stagnation and bleak outlook are a direct result of the fundamental challenges in having a diverse group of countries share a common currency─the euro was flawed at birth, with economic integration outpacing political integration. Stiglitz shows how the current structure promotes divergence rather than convergence. The question then is: Can the euro be saved?

After laying bare the European Central Bank’s misguided inflation-only mandate and explaining how eurozone policies, especially toward the crisis countries, have further exposed the zone’s flawed design, Stiglitz outlines three possible ways forward: fundamental reforms in the structure of the eurozone and the policies imposed on the member countries; a well-managed end to the single-currency euro experiment; or a bold, new system dubbed the “flexible euro.”
With its lessons for globalization in a world economy ever more deeply connected, The Euro is urgent and essential reading.
