Euro Crisis

A good decade after the introduction of the euro a deep rift is running through Europe. Unemployment remains high in the south, where the economy is in the doldrums. The North, on the other hand, has been obliged to play the role of paymaster and is being held hostage by the ECB. Dissatisfaction with this situation is growing on both sides. This webpage features articles by Hans-Werner Sinn on the fundamental design flaws of the Eurosystem. It demonstrates that the policies followed are endangering the market economy, democracy and peace in Europe and shows how these dangers can be countered.
