Brussels' Eurozone meeting will decide 'financial future of the world'

2011-12-13

Queen’s University European Union and Italian politics expert Philip Giurlando is available to talk about the Eurozone meetings that are taking place in Brussels starting today.

“The decisions that are going to be made at this meeting over the next few days will decide whether or not the Euro collapses and that has implications over the financial future of the world. A collapse would bring on a global recession. The decisions – or lack thereof – that are going to be made by this small group of individuals will have enormous global impact,” says Mr. Giurlando.

Mr. Giurlando was recently in Italy for a few months as a research fellow at University of Siena in Tuscany, Italy. He is currently writing his doctoral thesis at Queen's on Italy's entrance in the European Monetary Union (EMU).

Please note Mr. Giurlando is currently in Toronto.
