Most articles on Greece in the media focus on the effects of austerity, repayment of its debt, and its future in the eurozone. In \'Beyond Austerity : Reforming the Greek Economy\', leading Greek economists from institutions both within and outside Greece, take a broader and deeper view of the Greek crisis, examining the pathologies that made Greece vulnerable to the crisis and the implications for the entire eurozone. 0Each chapter takes on a specific policy area, examining it in terms of Greece\'s economic reality and offering possible directions for policy. The topics range from macroeconomic issues to markets and their regulation to finance to the public sector.0Individual chapters address the costs and benefits of participation in the eurozone, Greece\'s international competitiveness, taxation, pensions, the labor market, privatization, product markets, finance, education, healthcare, corruption, the justice system, and public administration. The contributors argue that Greek institutions require a deep overhaul rather than quick fixes to enable long-term growth and prosperity.<\/span>\" ;\u00A0\u00A0\u00A0\nschema:description<\/a> \"I.
