Greece’s economic travails have raised the question of whether it should leave the euro zone. Opinions on the merits of a departure vary, at times widely. Economic researchers Niklas Potrafke and Markus Reischmann conducted a survey of experts around the world to see if any consensus exists on what Greece should do. Written for the most part in plain English, this relevant and accessible report provides ample food for thought. getAbstract recommends it to investors, executives and policy makers.
In this summary, you will learn
- What the crisis in Greece entails,
- What options the country has,
- How expert opinions vary on the merits of a “Grexit” and
- How continued International Monetary Fund involvement in Greek economic reform is the preferred option among experts.
