SNS/SIFR Financepanel – Is the financial crisis and the euro crisis over?

Europe’s economy is at a standstill and more and more voices give warning of a Japanese scenario with chronic growth problems. The American economy is still growing, but only slowly.
The financial crisis in the United States and the European crisis led to an over-indebtedness for the banks as well as households and governments. Are balance sheets clearing up now?
Are there opportunities for growth? If not – how long will it take to resolve our problem with debt? In this autumn’s first meeting, we will discuss whether the crisis is over and what should be done if not.
