The Department of Finance, European Institute and the Financial Markets Group of the London School of Economics staged a debate on the European sovereign debt crisis. Prof Charles Goodhart,| founding member of the FMG and director of the Regulation and Financial Stability research programme at the FMG, chaired the debate. The panellists were:

  • Dr Jon Danielsson - reader at the LSE Department of Finance and member of the FMG.
  • Dr Bob Hancke - reader in European Political Economy at the LSE European Institute.
  • Dr Vassilis Monastiriotis - senior lecturer in the Political Economy of South Eastern Europe at the Hellenic Observatory, LSE European Institute.
  • Prof Dimitri Vayanos - professor of finance, programme director of Paul Woolley Centre for the Study of Capital Market Dysfunctionality, which is based at the FMG.

The panellists each outlined their analysis of the financial crisis, with particular emphasis on the Eurozone, and debated how it may be resolved. Their different academic backgrounds and views ranging from Political Economy to Financial Economics provided for a wide-ranging and lively discussion set against LSE's customary sharp analysis.
