After the Crisis reassesses the twin projects of structural reform and European integration in the wake of the Great Recession and the European Sovereign Debt Crisis. The volume compares the pre-crises debate to the current situation, surveys the state of the structural-reform agenda and the fiscal-policy response to the crisis. It also examines the asymmetric shocks across economies in the monetary union, cyclical behavior of output and financial
indicators, changes in Europeans' attitudes, the demographic challenges facing Europe, and the extent to which Europe is characterized by a substantial amount of inequality and geographical income clustering.
