October was a busy month for our author, Dr Thomas Mayer. His book, ‘Europe’s Unfinished Currency,’ was published at the beginning of the month and in order to promote and celebrate the release, Dr Mayer participated in a book tour around Europe and the U.S. with stops in several cities including London, Frankfort, and New York City. He was interviewed on Bloomberg ‘Market Makers’ and BNN ‘Headline,’ provided commentary pieces for publications such as the Wall Street Journal, and gave lectures at several institutions including the London School of Economics, the Milken Institute, and the Atlantic Council.
Before the book was even published, it received some wonderful endorsements from individuals such as Alan Greenspan and Tom Keene (Editor-at-Large, Bloomberg News). And since its release, it has received quite a lot of press from publications, such as The Economist, The Globalist, Financial World and others. In the latest issue of European Voice, Stewart Fleming said the following about ‘Europe’s Unfinished Currency’: “Thomas Mayer, who was until recently the chief economist at Deutsche Bank Group, is both a strong defender and critic of the single currency. He insists that the repairs so far proposed for the euro do not yet add up to a comprehensive strategy for reinforcing the currency’s foundations. He puts forward his own remedy […] [He has] produced analyses and conclusions written with a clear eye.” We would like to congratulate Dr Mayer on the success of his important book!
