What’s up with the Greek crisis? Concerns from Asia
Friday, 20 February 2015 18:07

By Siegfried Herzog, Regional Director Southeast and East Asia, Friedrich Naumann Foundation for Freedom


Greece and the rest of the European Union countries face an unprecedented showdown these days. The outcome might well affect the world economy to some extent and will thus impact on Asia in one way or the other due to the continuing importance of the European Union for world trade and the financial markets. It also holds lessons for policymakers worldwide, namely that decisions that disregard fundamental economic principles tend to produce unpleasant consequences sooner or later.

Creating the Euro was an audacious undertaking that was mainly motivated by politics: It was meant to bind Europe closer together after German unification. It was also seen as a way to lower transaction costs in Europe and thus complement the fully integrated Common Market. However, economic theory tells us that a currency union works best if the member economies are similar and in sync with each other. This did not really apply to all Eurozone members and it definitely did not apply to Greece. The construction of the Euro therefore included fairly stringent rules, the Maastricht criteria, on the size of public deficits, debt ceilings and individual liabilities for national debt. This was meant to ensure a certain economic synchronicity and robustness. A joint liability for debt was excluded because member countries would then have to pay for fiscal decisions of one member country without being able to influence the decision or discipline errant behavior. This point was crucial for Germany as it wanted to ensure that the new currency would be a strong and stable one – like the Deutsche Mark that it gave up.

International Society for Individual Liberty World Conference on Market Liberalization in Bali

June 29-July 3, 2015

You have a unique opportunity to join friends of liberty in one of the most exotic places on Earth — the tropical paradise of Bali. A friend is offering the use of his lavish estate — which looks like a movie location — for our meetings of the 2015 World Conference on Market Liberalization in Bali! Luminaries like Milton Friedman have stayed there. The estate is steps from a range of hotels and B&Bs, and restaurants serving sumptuous but inexpensive cuisine.  There will be opportunities within the conference to enjoy the incredible beauty of the nearby beaches, nature preserves, and ancient temples. And there is lively nightlife. We have economists and followers of Austrian Economics and libertarians all over the world coming together at this conference.  Here you can make new friends and share your ideas, not to mention the great food and environment. You can enjoy even more of exotic Bali by arriving early or staying over.  You won’t want to miss out on this absolutely life-changing event.

Perspective from the Youth Alliance for the Future of Korea: EFN Asia conference 2014
Monday, 09 February 2015 14:24

Ms Kwon Ji-Eun, the staff of The Young Alliance for the Future of Korea, took part in our EFN Asia conference 2014 in Hong Kong and now she expresses her impression.


For original source-http://www.fnfkorea.org/

34.JPGIt was November, when I arrived in the Hong Kong international airport, while Media were repeatedly reporting the demonstration for a democratic election in Hong Kong. Although the winter would come soon, the climate in Hong Kong was milder than expected. Unlike my expectation that the entire city would be seized by the tension caused by the demonstration, it wasn't hard to feel the energy on the vigorous face of busily walking citizens. The first impression of the city was not striking, yet vibrant in moderation. I participated in the annual conference of 'EFN (Economic Freedom Network) Asia 2014' in Hong Kong thanks to the recommendation of Friedrich Naumann Foundation from Germany.
