Back in April, between the 2 rounds of the presidential election, I took part in a conference at the U. of Wisconsin in which I spoke about French politics and its implications for the euro. Today, over at Econbrowser, Menzie Chinn, who also participated in the conference, refers to his lecture and also gives a link to video of the whole conference. By now, the first part of my lecture is outdated, of course, since we know how the election turned out, but if you're interested, it starts at about minute 23. Menzie precedes me, George Ross follows, and then there is a question session. You can learn about the economics of the euro zone from Menzie and about the politics of the European Union from George.
