James K. Galbraith’s new book reveals what went on behind the Greek crisis
What led to a true Greek tragedy? Rigid, even unethical mandates, according to Dr. James K. Galbraith, author of Welcome to the Poisoned Chalice: The Destruction of Greece and the Future of Europe. In this new episode of Smart Talk, Andrew Mazzone, President of the Henry George School of Social Science, talks to Dr. Galbraith about what went wrong in Greece, and why it went wrong — and what lessons we can draw from the ruins of Greece.
