Buying Time: The Delayed Crisis of Democratic Capitalism
by Wolfgang Streeck
March 23, 2017 - March 29, 2017 (read/capitalism-etc/owned-ebooks)

the overall thrust is a call for an end to the EMU so that nation states have the ability to manipulate their currency (when needed to correct trade imbalances or pay off private debts), and thus end the reign of the market
