Eurozone crisis
Thursday 15th March 2012
Chartered Accountants House, Dublin

As the euro crisis unfolds the impact on the Irish economy is becoming clearer. Much weaker economic growth will be an outcome of any renewed recession in Europe. As the single currency marks its 10th anniversary, some are predicting a repeat of the 1930s Great Depression if Europe's financial/sovereign debt crisis cannot be contained and resolved.

Looming behind the euro crisis is the more fundamental challenge of the stress within the European Union's political system. Many commentators are calling for fiscal union to be complemented by economic and political union within Europe. Whilst this might be an economic necessity for some, it is not politically feasible.

This seminar will bring together an expert panel of speakers to detail the unfolding crisis, examine the impact on Ireland and look to the future outcomes of the crisis. Delegates will get a measure of the drivers behind the crisis and how it will impact on the Irish economy and on their own organisation.

Lucinda Creighton, TD
Minister of State for European Affairs

Joe Durkan
Economic & Social Research Institute (ESRI)

Philip Halpin
