fiscal discipline over the course of decades have destroyed the Greek
economy, burdened it with unsustainable debt, escalated social unrest
and threatens the future of the euro. Lehigh students and
faculty will have an opportunity to study these consequences in

institutions and companies from Greece, Germany and other European
nations resulting in a deeper understanding of how businesses
absorb, and recover from, severe financial disruptions.
