Episode 10 - Get with the (first) programme
Amid more pressing issues, the 10th anniversary of Greece's first international bailout went slightly under the radar earlier this year.
However, to round off the first series of The Agora podcast, we have brought together three experts on the subject. Together, they look back at the events of a decade ago, which left a big mark on Greece, and asses the continuing impact of the first memorandum of understanding (MoU).
Host Nick Malkoutzis speaks to Megan Greene, a senior fellow at the Harvard Kennedy School, Marcus Walker, the South Europe bureau chief of the Wall Street Journal, and MacroPolis co-founder Yiannis Mouzakis.
These seasoned Greek crisis watchers discuss, among other things, why Greece had to be bailed out, whether there were any alternatives, what kind of flaws the adjustment programme had and what were its main legacies.
In this podcast series, we're keeping alive the spirt of our long-running blog section, The Agora, which has been a forum for discussing all kinds of issues over a number of years.
We examine political, economic and social developments in Greece. But our podcasts will also look at what’s happening in the world around us.
We aim to provide you with insight from our own experts and analysis from special guests.
So, if you enjoy intelligent, lively discussion and want the bigger picture, join us for a stroll through the Agora.
