The 2011 Euro Plus Monitor: Progress Amid the Turmoil
15 November 2011
Amid the worst turmoil in the history of European integration, many eurozone member countries are adjusting rapidly. If the eurozone gets through the grave crisis, it could emerge as a much more balanced and dynamic region than it was before. This is the major message of The 2011 Euro Plus Monitor, a new policy brief jointly released by Berenberg Bank and the Lisbon Council. The 2011 Euro Plus Monitor ranks the 17 eurozone countries in two separate ways, namely 1) based on their overall economic health and 2) on the speed with which they are adjusting to the challenges posed by the turmoil. The study was launched in the presence of Herman Van Rompuy, president of the European Council and acting chair of the eurozone heads of state summit.
