Über den Autor und weitere Mitwirkende

George Papaconstantinou was the point man in the Greek economic and financial crisis. When he became Finance Minister in October 2009, he uncovered the true extent of Greece’s fiscal troubles, went on to participate in all the European discussions and efforts to create a support mechanism for Greece, and negotiated the 110 billion Euro loan agreement with the EU and the IMF, together with the package of fiscal, structural and financial policies which went along with the largest loan ever received by a country.

During his tenure as Finance Minister in this critical period for Greece and Europe, he overhauled the budget process, put in place expenditure monitoring and assessment mechanisms, and created an independent statistical authority; embarked on tax reform, with legislative and organizational changes to combat tax evasion; implemented wide-ranging structural reforms in product, service and financial markets; and designed a large-scale privatization program. When he left office, the public deficit was 6 percentage points of GDP lower, Greece had recovered half the competitiveness lost since Eurozone entry and was the fastest reforming OECD country – a huge adjustment effort with however an equally large economic and social cost. In the process, he also became the perfect scapegoat for all the troubles of the country, ending up in a trial by a special court for his handling of the so-called Lagarde list – a gruelling personal ordeal which he powerfully describes in the book.

George was born in Athens in 1961, and studied economics in the UK and the US. After obtaining a Ph.D from the London School of Economics, he went on to work for 10 years as an international civil servant at the OECD in Paris. In 1997, he returned to Greece to serve in a policy advisory capacity for the Greek government under Prime Minister Kostas Simitis. He ran for parliament for the first time in 2000, was elected in 2007, became party spokesman, and in 2009 headed the PASOK list for the June European Parliament elections. He resigned as an MEP a few months after being elected, upon being appointed Finance Minister in the government formed by George Papandreou following the October 2009 elections.

Very interesting and well written story. I wish the end included chapter where Mr. Papaconstantinou listed the lessons learned and what he would have done different if he could turn back the clock.

A memoir by the Greek finance minister at the start of the 2009 euro crisis. Best summary of the various bailouts of Greece up to the present that I have read.

An interesting account of the crisis that lacks much in the way of an analytical framework of the Greek crisis

5.0 von 5 Sternen the writer has chosen a down-to-earth writing style and the book reads more like a “whodunit” than a political biography 30. Juni 2016

Format: Taschenbuch
“Game Over: The Inside Story of the Greek Crisis” is a surprising and unique book that tells the story of the Greek financial crisis from the personal vantage point of the Minister of Finance at the time. The result is a compelling story about the daily grind of dealing with an increasingly complex situation with surprising twists and turns. Although dealing necessarily with complex economic and political issues, the writer has chosen a down-to-earth writing style and the book reads more like a “whodunit” than a political biography. It will take years for historians and political analysts to write the full story about the Greek crisis but this book is an essential and entertaining contribution to understanding the unfolding of this incredible story. I absolutely recommend it.
