The Rafael del Pino Foundation organised, on 3 April 2013, a debate on the future of the Euro on the occasion of the publication of the book "The euro: the beginning, the middle and the end?"
At the time of the creation of the Eurozone there was strong opposition to Britain's membership from most free-market economists. However, these economists took more nuanced positions on the participation of most of the current Eurozone members. In fact, most economists supported the Euro because they believed it would reduce inflationary pressures and stimulate economic reform.
The debate analysed the current problems of the Euro, from the moment it was first introduced. Today, some economists are proposing radical solutions to solve the crisis of the European Monetary Union, whose collapse has only been postponed by the actions of the member states and the European Central Bank. It will not be possible to return to the pre-crisis status quo if the current Eurozone members are not able to achieve higher rates of economic growth.
