The Lecture will focus on the banking crisis of 2008 overcome by an enormous intervention of the European states. The consequence was a state debt crisis. However this state debt crisis hit the members of the EU in rather different ways and degrees. Especially the southern member states, Portugal, Spain and especially Greece had and have huge problems, while Germany is the clear winner of the crisis. This unequal situation creates the biggest challenge the EU ever saw.
