One year after Greece agreed a rescue package with the EU and the IMF, this debate considers how best Greece can secure future economic growth. Is the austerity plan working? Can Greece avoid a sovereign debt default? What new reform measures might be desirable in the future?

Herakles Polemarchakis is Professor of Economics, University of Warwick and economic advisor to the prime minister of Greece
