Date: Monday, November 21, 2:15 pm

Place: Hörsaal F, Juridicum, University of Bonn


Markus Brunnermeier will present his new book "The Euro and the Battle of Ideas", written together with Harold James and Jean-Pierre Landau. In this book, Brunnermeier and his coauthors argue that the core problem with the Euro lies in the philosophical differences between the founding countries of the Eurozone, particularly Germany and France. But the authors also show how these seemingly incompatible differences can be reconciled to ensure Europe’s survival.


Markus K. Brunnermeier is Professor at Princeton University, where he is a faculty member of the Department of Economics and director of Princeton's Bendheim Center for Finance. His research focuses on international financial markets and the macroeconomy with special emphasis on bubbles, liquidity, financial and monetary price stability.
