520    This book analyzes the European Great Recession of 2008-12,
       its economic and social causes, its historical roots, and 
       the policies adopted by the European Union to find a way 
       out of it. It contains explicit debates with several 
       economists and analysts on some of the most controversial 
       questions about the causes of the crisis and the policies 
       applied by the European Union. It presents the cases of 
       Iceland, Greece and Ireland, the countries that first 
       declined into crisis in Europe, each of them in a 
       different way. Iceland is a case study for reckless 
       banking practices, Greece of reckless public spending, and
       Ireland of reckless household indebtedness. At least seven
       other countries, mostly from the peripheries of Europe, 
       had similarly reckless banking and spending practices. In 
       the center of the book are the economic and social causes 
       of the crisis. Contemporary advanced capitalism became 
       financialized, de-industrialized and globalized and got 
       rid of the "straitjacket" of regulations. Solid banking 
       was replaced by high-risk, "casino-type" activity. The 
       European common currency also had a structural problem - 
       monetary unification without a federal state and fiscal 
       unification. The other side of the same coin is European 
       hyper-consumerism. A new lifestyle emerged during two 
       super-prosperous periods in the 1950s to 1960s, and during
       the 1990s to 2006. Trying to find an exit policy, the 
       European Union turned to strict austerity measures to curb
       the budget deficit and indebtedness. This book critically 
       analyzes the debate around austerity policy. The creation 
       of important supra-national institutions, and of a 
       financial supervisory authority and stability mechanisms, 
       strengthens integration. The correction of the euro's 
       structural mistake by creating a quasi-fiscal unification 
       is even more important. The introduction of mandatory 
       fiscal rules and their 
520 8  supervision promises a long-term solution for a well-
       functioning common currency. These measures, meanwhile, 
       create a two-tier European Union with a fast-track core. 
       This book suggests that the European Union will emerge 
       stronger from the crisis. This book will be of particular 
       interest to students and researchers of economics, history,
       political science and international finance, but will also
       prove profitable reading for practitioners and the 
       interested public
