How Europe Is Overcoming the Euro Crisis


In partnership with the American Council on Germany and the Council for the United States and Italy, the French-American Foundation welcomed Klaus Regling, Managing Director of the European Stability Mechanism, created in 2012 to provide financial assistance to eurozone member nations in financial difficulty. Regling shared his insights on the recovery of the European economy following the European debt crisis and a slew of bailouts to aid faltering governments and banking systems in several nations throughout the eurozone.
