Rescuing Greece: Costas Lapavitsas on euro-exit and economic recovery
In this wide-ranging interview for The Press Project, economist and member of Popular Unity Costas Lapavitsas lays out a road-map for a Greek recovery. As he has long argued, a pre-requisite for this is a return to an exit from the eurozone and a return to a sovereign currency. However, this must be conducted within a broader strategy of socially just and sustainable economic recovery in the interests of the Greek popular classes.
Many of the themes in this interview were developed by Lapavitsas and Heiner Flassbeck in Against the Troika: Crisis and Austerity in the Eurozone, available through the Verso website with a 30% discount and free shipping.
