The end of the euro : the uneasy future of the European Union by Johan van Overtveldt( Book )

From noted economic journalist Johan Van Overtveldt: an up-to-the-minute examination of the fate of the euro. In The End of the Euro, Van Overtveldt shows how uniting Germany, France, Italy, and other Euoprean countries with a single currency and monetary policy - but without a true political union to govern it - could only ever result in major imbalances between the members countries, and threaten the stability of the European Union itself. This was recognized from the start by many economists and other observers, and the political elite paid elaborate lip service to their warnings. However, none of these political leaders truly followed up on these risks in terms of actions and reforms. As a result, the political elite supervising Europe's monetary union turned a great idea - the creation of a unified currency - into a huge gamble. Implicit in their reasoning was the idea that Europe's politicians would always be able to improvise an adequate solution to any crisis that might occur. For ten years, the euro and the euro countries prospered. But things changed dramatically with the financial crisis of 2007-2008. Given the basic characteristics of the monetary union, a major crisis was unavoidable: untenable imbalances were enshrined in the different treaties, pacts, and political agreements that led to the creation of the euro in the first place. The continent's politicians never acted on this reality, which makes them the prime culprits for the long, painful death agony of the euro. After its immediate impact, the crisis caused the financial and capital markets to worry about the so-called "sovereign risks," i.e. countries running the risk of becoming insolvent. Although budget deficits in countries such as the United States and the United Kingdom were much larger than the aggregate deficit data for the euro area, markets started to home in on the risks posed by separate countries within the European monetary union. Investors recognized that the enormous problem facing Europe was the systematic working of the eurozone itself. Van Overtveldt concludes with an analysis of what lies in wait for the monetary union - and for a deeply divided continent. Either the EMU transforms itself fundamentally or it disintegrates, and the likeliest outcome is the latter. -- from dust jacket
A giant reborn : why the US will dominate the 21st century by Johan van Overtveldt( Book )

5 editions published in 2015 in English and Dutch and held by 50 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The world is in turmoil. Whether one looks at Europe, Asia, North America, the Middle East, Africa, or Latin America, uncertainty and upheaval seem to be the order of the day. Nevertheless, there seems to be an odd certainty in the minds of many pundits, writers, and citizens in this highly volatile world of geopolitics: the days of the United States as the world's sole superpower are over. The consensus tells us that the United States will not be able to keep a status as a major power among China, the European community, and a resurgent Russia. How realistic is this perspective, though? Is the "air of inevitability" concerning America's demise merely a passing breeze? How solid is the "unstoppable rise" of the Chinese? How likely is it for Europe to right its ship? A Giant Reborn, from critically acclaimed author and leading economic journalist Johan Van Overtveldt, dispels many of these ingrained assumptions and argues that the 21st century will be defined by the country currently best set up to succeed: the United States of America. In the current chaotic political climate it seems risky to say any country will be able to maintain its current status. But Van Overtveldt provides a measured, insightful, and thoroughly engaging examination of the evidence. In his richly detailed style and straightforward explanations, he masterfully lays out a case for why America, against many pundits' best predictions, is set up to continue its 20th-century success into this millennium. A Giant Reborn shows readers that the reports of America's death, to paraphrase the father of American literature, have been greatly exaggerated"--

Red de vrije markt. De terugkeer van Milton Friedman by Johan van Overtveldt( Book )

4 editions published in 2012 in Dutch and held by 6 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

De wereldeconomie staat in brand en niemand lijkt in staat haar te blussen. Alles wordt ter discussie gesteld: de welvaartsstaat, solidariteit, de fundamenten van onze economie. Te midden van die chaos verkruimelen de grote verhalen, worden ze slogans, holle kreten. Net daarom is het belangrijk om terug te grijpen naar denkers die onze wereld hebben gevormd, zoals Milton Friedman. Friedman is samen met zijn tegenhanger John Maynard Keynes de belangrijkste econoom van de twintigste eeuw. Ten onrechte wordt Friedman opgevoerd als de immorele vader van het wilde kapitalisme. Johan Van Overtveldt beschrijft met veel verve de economische geschiedenis van de afgelopen eeuw aan de hand van het leven en werk van Friedman. Zijn klassiek geworden analyse van de Grote Depressie van de jaren dertig vormt een inspiratiebron bij het aanpakken van de huidige crisis
