Tuesday, November 26, 2019
The Consulate General of Greece in New York
69 East, 79th Street
Combining quantitative results from a newly constructed database with qualitative material from contemporary publications, policy documents and archives, the talk will attempt to address questions such as: What was the volume and nature of American aid in post-war Greece, how was it utilized and what was its impact on economic performance? What were the conditions, institutions and policies a:ached to that aid, and how successful were US missions in using aid as leverage to influence domestic policy-making, particularly in bringing about painful stabilisation and policy reform?
