In today's challenging political and financial climate, the Eurozone has many trials ahead. As Europe prepares for the Eurozone 2.0, it will have to balance smart and inclusive growth with smart austerity measures. Is the European utopia of solidarity, stability and integration a broken promise?
Dimensions to be addressed:
1. How can we reconcile diverging interests among European nations?
2. Should budgetary discipline be enforced? If so, how?
3. Can Germany effectively run the Eurozone's economic policy?
4. How should the birth defects of the Eurozone be rectified to achieve competitiveness on the global stage?
