Europe stands on the brink of a monumental fall, wrestling with colossal economic, social, political and strategic challenges. Francesco Bongiovanni reveals the hidden cracks that threaten to tear Europe apart—and what solutions lie ahead in confronting what ails the Eurozone.
Having witnessed first-hand the dynamism of America and the Far East, Harvard-educated entrepreneur Francesco Bongiovanni returned to find a decaying Europe, prompting him to paint a unique, multi-dimensional portrait of Europe that leads to the conclusion that increasing impoverishment, instability and fragmentation are inescapable. The author of The Decline and Fall of Europe—which has been labeled “a wake-up call for the twenty-first century” by The Guardian and praised by The Wall Street Journal as the best account to date of the European crises, Bongiovanni takes a hard look at the structural elements, many of which have been in place since World War II, that have collided to produce a Eurozone that is in crisis and having direct implications on the global economic recovery.
In tailored discussions suited to the needs of the audience, Bongiovanni presents in an engaging and accessibly style based on his meticulous research to provide a balanced, detailed, comprehensive and informative picture of the challenges that face Europe and what the global political and business community must do to confront these issues before its too late.
Bongiovanni—who holds a Harvard MBA and an engineering doctorate—spent several decades in Asia, Europe, Africa and the US as an investment banker in private equity and international advisory and as an entrepreneur.
