Downgraded: will Europe rally or come undone? (part 2)

The downgrade of nine European nations may be a call to action, but François Picard’s panel is at odds over the intentions of "Anglo-Saxon rating agencies" and over whether Europeans can actually initiate bold reform with a French presidential election campaign underway.

  • Fabienne KELLER, UMP Senator, Delegation for the European Union;
  • Jorgo CHATZIMARKAKIS, MEP, Group of the Alliance of Liberals and Democrats for Europe;
  • Harald HAU, Professor of Finance, University of Geneva and Swiss Finance Institute;
  • Jean-François ROBIN, Head of Strategy, Natixis Bank.
