Speaker(s): Professor Luis Garicano
Chair: Dr Ignacio Palcios-Huerta

Recorded on 10 January 2011 at Old Theatre, Old Building

Spain is widely considered the weak link in the Euro construction. We examine the validity of this assumption by analysing the origins and evolution of the current crisis and the growth perspectives of Spain. Luis Garicano is a Professor of Economics and Strategy at the LSE's departments of Management and Economics. Through the Madrid based FEDEA foundation, he has been involved in efforts to promote structural reforms in the Spanish Economy. In particular he has co-authored proposals to reform the labor markets, housing markets, and the pension and health systems, as well as a recent study with McKinsey on the Growth perspectives for the Spanish economy. He co-edits the most widely read economics blog in Spanish, NadaesGratis.
