Economics Center Director George Vredeveld comments on the economic and financial crisis in the European Union.

The economic and financial crisis in the European Union has both captivated and confounded many of us. What caused these disturbing problems? How can it be that a recession in the EU can affect the U.S. and our metro area?

Lindner College of Business, takes a broader approach by considering a mythical country called Lowtech, which has not yet joined the Eurozone.
