Since the financial crash, the future of the Euro has been in doubt. Propping it up has come at a heavy cost – with the imposition of harsh austerity measures, and in Greece and Italy, with the replacement of elected governments with technocrats.

Or will the Eurozone simply muddle through?
The speakers are Christian May, editor of City A.M.; Keith Pilbeam, professor of economics at City, University of London; Bruno Waterfield, Brussels correspondent for The Times. The chair is Phil Mullan, author of Creative Destruction: How to start an economic renaissance.
