The deepening crisis in the European Union: The need for a fundamental change
The EuroMemorandum 2013 is now online. It is supported by more than 350 economists and social scientists from all over Europe.
The European Union is facing an increasingly severe crisis. The EuroMemorandum 2013 critically analyses recent economic developments in Europe and emphasises the need for an alternative economic policy. Neo-liberal policies adopted by European and nat ional authorities in response to the crisis have exacerbated unemployment and social hardship across much of Europe. The EuroMemorandum is intended as a contribution to developing initiatives by intellectual and social movements to promote greater coordination among movements at a European level and a different Europe that is based on the principles of democratic participation, social justice and environmental sustainability.

VIDEO ONLINE: The crisis of the Eurozone - are there progressive answers?
The crisis of the Eurozone has become more profound during the last few weeks. Soon after the rescue package deal for Greece in July, Spain, Italy and also France became the new targets of financial markets. Meanwhile, the pronounced austerity policies implemented throughout the Eurozone lead to a marked slowdown in growth, fears that the Eurozone might enter into an new recession are on the rise. This triggers a number of questions from a progressive point of view. Therefore, on 15 September, core members of the EuroMemo Group have participated in a panel discussion on the crisis of the Eurozone and progressive answers. A video of this panel discussion in Vienna is now available online here.
