Professor Christian de Boissieu is chairman of the French Council of Economic Analysis and director of the master’s degree in banking and finance program at the Pantheon-Sorbonne University in Paris. During his career he has also advised the World Bank, European Commission, and European Parliament. At the Fourth Annual CFA Institute European Investment Conference in Paris, he’ll discuss financial issues facing the European Union.
Professor de Boissieu was interviewed by Bloomberg news to hear his thoughts in advance of the Group of 20 Finance ministers’ meeting earlier this year, and co-wrote an article in the French-language Le Monde last month discussing four measures that could save the euro.
During his session at the European Investment Conference, Professor de Boissieu will look at whether the European Union stands a chance of surviving sovereign defaults, and he will examine some possible sources of sustainable growth for Europe alongside existing social tensions and growing unemployment.
