Today I gave a talk at the Conference RENCONTRES ECONOMIQUES 2012 “L’ajustement des déséquilibres en zone euro” at the Ministry of Finance in Paris. I discussed the legacy of the Monti government, the positive and negative aspects of the economic reforms, and some implications of the current governmernt crisis. I was very surprised to see how little the French audience actually knew about the economic and political situation in Italy. The slides of my presentations are here, or click on the below.
