A timely and provocative account of why the euro has failed and why, as a result, the Union will unravel

Examining key economic indicators and assessing the situation across Europe, two British journalists assess why the euro has failed—and what will happen when the European Union completely unravels.
“This book is a must-read for anyone who cares about the future of Europe and progressive politics. Larry Elliott and Dan Atkinson correctly predicted the euro would prove a calamity. They are right today that the euro crisis is far from over. Their demand for a radical change of approach must be taken seriously—by policy makers and politicians alike.”—Ed Balls, UK Shadow Chancellor from 2011 to 2015
“[The book] offers useful insight into why so many people thought the euro was a good idea in the first place.”—Harvard Business Review

Larry Elliott is economics editor at the Guardian.Dan Atkinson is financial editor at Sticky Content. Both authors live in the UK.

Europe Isn’t Working is… entertaining, informative [and] iconoclastic … This is a valuable resource for anyone wishing to ground their arguments against the EU in hard facts, told in an easy to read and engaging fashion.”—Richard Allday, Counterfire
