  • Financial Times publishes first ebook based on ‘If Greece goes…’ series

    The Financial Times has published its first ebook, “If Greece goes…”, which examines the potential consequences of the country leaving the eurozone. The FT has led coverage of the eurozone crisis and Greece’s political and financial turmoil. As Greece heads towards fresh elections on June 17, this topical ebook draws from an editorial series that originally ran in print and online in May 2012, written by the FT’s specialist correspondents and commentators.

Other contributors include FT commentators Martin Wolf, Wolfgang Munchau, Gillian Tett and Peter Spiegel, and Pavlos Eleftheriadis, Fellow in Law at Mansfield College, Oxford University.
