Remarks on the Eurozone crisis at the People’s Pledge Congress

At the People’s Pledge Congress today, I appeared on a panel discussing the political implications of the Eurozone crisis. I would have loved to focus on democracy, freedom and the rule of law but the cause of the crisis was the key theme.

As ever, I blamed our statist, inflationary monetary arrangements for creating the incentives and institutions which supported such dreadful behaviour and outcomes. I went on Russia Today (who asked) to discuss the campaign afterwards.

You can find my speaking notes here.
