Jacob Funk Kirkegaard, a recognized euro crisis expert, assessed whether recent developments in Cyprus and Italy will undermine stability in Europe. Barbara Kotschwar, the Institute's research fellow on Latin American political economy, spoke about whether the region's policies will return to more market- and US-friendly paths, given recent developments in Brazil, Cuba, Mexico, and Venezuela.
