This study discusses and analyses the broad issues that have underpinned the current European economic crisis. It examines the experiences of three countries - Greece, Ireland, and Portugal - which reveal an economic system which lacks the adjustment mechanisms that countries with sovereign currencies take for granted. Europe in an Age of Austerity provides an in-depth discussion and analysis of the broad issues that have underpinned the current European economic crisis. It also offers detailed analysis of the experiences of three countries - Greece, Ireland, and Portugal - that had to be bailed out by the Troika. It examines four elements of crisis which have dominated the debate about recessionary Europe: the housing crisis, the banking crisis, the sovereign debt crisis, and the austerity crisis. The book challenges the popular view that today's economic crisis in Europe is a sovereign debt crisis. The author argues that today's economic crisis is a derivative of private sector overspending which existed long before the present recession began in 2008. This overspending went unnoticed as the European Monetary Union's single currency regime had no automatic signals for warning in the event of private sector overspending. A major fault of the Euro is revealed, showing an economic system which lacks the adjustment mechanisms that countries with sovereign currencies take for granted. While there is much literature available on the problems of the US economy, there is relatively little focus on the Europe' economic crisis. This book aims to fill this gap, as it offers insight into Europe's current economic problems
