The conflict in the Eurozone and its future
This year the eurozone turns twenty. If the first ten were characterized by a complex start-up phase in search of an internal balance, the second decade has been marked by a crisis that has not yet found a solution. The Eurozone suffered two crises in 2008-2009 and 2012-13. And currently, it is again marked by a decline in growth and an increase in unemployment. The autumn crisis of 2008, officially begun in the United States with the failure of Lehman Brothers, was considered the worst financial crisis since the Great Depression. However, in the following two years, the fear of a social catastrophe in the United States was over. Instead, the contagion of the crisis that hit Europe, causing a deep recession and mass unemployment, has not yet found an effective solution.
