Video and multimedia

altIn this Vi multimedia teaching resource, Alfredo Calcagno, of UNCTAD's Division on Globalization and Development Strategies, traces the dire consequences of the global economic crisis on the euro-zone.

Beginning with a look at the down-hill path of GDPs in European countries since the crisis, Calcagno examines the effect of austerity measures, and proposes alternative monetary, labour and structural reforms to help pull the most affected countries from economic and social disaster.
