“Another book on the Great Recession? Is there anything worth saying yet unsaid?" Well, there is a lot that is new, important and illuminating in Daniel Dăianu's new book. The impact of the events of 2007-08 on all countries of the EU was not the same. Most of the ex-socialist countries were in the midst of a spurt of growth and expectation for a speedy narrowing of the gap between the new democracies and the old west. The Great Recession inflicted each the ex-socialist new member states with its own blows, and Dăianu, as a member of the European Parliament has had the best observation posts to describe and analyse the events in these states and compare them to what has happened in the old EU of western Europe. And as a member in the policy drafting bodies in his native Romania he has a particularly good perspective on the events in his own country and in the western Balkans as a whole. For anybody concerned with economic events and policies in Europe this book is a must.”

“New Europe and the Great Recession is rich in lessons for policymakers wishing to avoid the pitfalls leading up and in response to the global financial crisis. A remarkably detailed narrative of the broad institutional and political economy weaknesses that allowed the crisis to transpire, Daniel Dăianu illustrates the manner in which these weaknesses played out on the ground. In doing so, the book gracefully links economic theory to reality. The author masterfully extracts key features of these challenges and provides useful guidance for the New Europe in a lively manner that will appeal to technical and nontechnical audiences alike.”

“Deep policy and practical understanding, strengthened by direct experience at the policy making level and a welcome critical yet constructive approach are the salient features of this book. Daniel Dăianu's new volume offers a comprehensive and profound analysis of the complex policy issues and institutional transformations during the financial crisis in the industrialised world with a focus on the European Union and Romania”.
