An experienced and intuitive economist, Juergen Stark’s depth of knowledge and understanding will provide an eye-opening insight into the financial situation in Europe. Essential listening for economists at all levels and anyone with an interest in the EU.
Known for his former role as chief economist at European Central Bank, Juergen Stark resigned from the post in 2011 after more than six years of providing guidance. He felt that he had no choice other than to end his stretch with the bank early, claiming that the organisation was in a state of panic over the Eurozone crisis and was undertaking misguided steps whilst under pressure from financial powers. This move testament to Starks commitment to sound economic practice was possibly not surprising to those familiar with his incredible career.
