Today, on behalf of the Bertelsmann Stiftung & the Bertelsmann Foundation in Washington DC, we would very much like to invite you to take part in an after work roundtable discussion on:
Surviving a Debt Crisis – Lessons for Europe from Latin America
Former Vice President Kiel Institute for the World Economy and
Energy Expert and Future Challenges Regional Editor
Tuesday, June 25, 2013, 6:00 pm – 7:30 pm followed by reception at Bertelsmann Unter den Linden 1, in Berlin, Germany
History repeats itself. Whether we learn from the past is up to us. “Surviving A Debt Crisis: Five Lessons for Europe from Latin America” argues that Latin America’s 1980s struggle with debt offers instruction for today’s European leaders as they grapple with their own fiscal challenges.
What is the proper role of austerity? How can a country shed debt while mired in recession? Is there a path to growth? And does reform risk political backlash?
Our expert panel will debate these questions, which are addressed in the new Bertelsmann Foundation study. Latin America lost a decade. Europe need not.
please RSVP the latest by Monday, June 24 to firstname.lastname@example.org
Space is limited.
