As the European Crisis continues, with no solution in sight, it is
becoming increasingly clear to many that the problems are deep and structural. Stagnant
growth, persistent unemployment, and public dissatisfaction are threatening the very
premises of the European project. Although some believe that “an ever-closer Europe” is the solution, others argue that the current crisis is no accident; it is the natural result of
naïve and excessively optimistic expectations concerning the economic benefits of
integration and centralization. Professor Václav Klaus, former Czech minister of finance
and prime minister, and now distinguished senior fellow at the Cato Institute, will address
these pressing questions during his first visit to Washington just days after stepping down
from his second term as president. Please join us for what should be a most interesting
discussion. To learn more and RSVP, please visit
