Sir Howard Davies, Economist, Visiting Faculty Member at Sciences Po Paris

As eurozone leaders continue to grapple with the debt crisis, the "austerity vs growth" debate remains in the spotlight. Is Europe a lost continent? Markus Karlsson puts the question to Sir Howard Davies, who made that very claim two years ago. He's a former Deputy Governor of the Bank of England and a former director of the London School of Economics. Now he is a visiting professor at the political science university Sciences Po here in Paris.
