Global bloggers respond to Surviving a Debt Crisis
In Fall of 2012, I began to develop a Latin America portfolio at Bertelsmann Foundation as part of the Global Economic Dynamics project. With Europe trudging through a debt crisis, we felt that considering the Latin American experience with debt would be a perfect introduction to why Brasilia matters to Berlin, and why Madrid matters to Mexico City. Ultimately, I compiled my research into the paper Surviving a Debt Crisis: Five Lessons for Europe from Latin America.
My goal with the document was to reinvigorate a dialogue that I felt had become stale. Just read any editorial in any major newspaper and one finds the same tired arguments. In the paper I attempt to offer a different perspective, and it is my great pleasure that a group of Future Challenges bloggers have considered my work and offered their own perspectives. These are precisely the new angles that could help break the logjam in current debates.
