The Greek Drama and Democracy in Europe

Intervenant(s) :
Mr. James Galbraith , Professor at the University of Texas at Austin (USA) .
James K. Galbraith holds the Lloyd M. Bentsen Jr. Chair of Government/Business Relations at the Lyndon B. Johnson School of Public Affairs, the University of Texas at Austin. His most recent book, The End of Normal, was published in September, 2014 by Free Press. His previous book, Inequality and Instability was published in 2012 by Oxford University Press, and his next one, What Everyone Needs to Know About Inequality, will also be published by Oxford.
Galbraith holds degrees from Harvard (A.B., 1974) and Yale (Ph.D. in Economics, 1981).

In 2010 he was elected to the Accademia Nazionale dei Lincei. In 2012, he was President of the Association for Evolutionary Economics. He is the 2014 co-winner of the Leontief Prize for advancing the frontiers of economic thought.

The essence of democracy lies in the possibility that elections can change the course of events. The essence of European policy lies in common acquiescence to a program laid down by the governing institutions in Europe, most especially the European Central Bank and the European Commission. The recent and ongoing quest of the Greek government to alter the course of European policy poses in dramatic form the question whether European institutions are compatible with democratic development, and the future of Europe depends on how this question will be resolved. In recent months Professor Galbraith has been a close observer of the struggle from Athens, from Brussels and of course from the American perspective.
