Governing the EU: Critical Perspectives and Alternative Solutions to the Eurozone Crisis

Transnational Institute (TNI), “a worldwide fellowship of activist scholars,” compiled the work of five critical economists who developed solutions to the crisis in Europe. Their ideas are alternatives to recently adopted measures that advance the powers of the European Commission, imperil labor rights, and further austerity measures. The critics scrutinize the supporting narrative of “a new model of economic governance for stability,” and highlight the strong influence of the financial sector and lobbying groups on the policy making process.
