Debate on the content of the coming Blockupy protests of March 18th

This evening we will focus on different aspects of the ECB. On the one hand it is part of the Troika intervening in Greece and next to the Eurogroup and the EU commission the main carrier of EU-wide austerity policies. What does this austerity-focused policy tell us about the ECB, its interests and worldview? Why have banks been bailed out and are countries left to pick up the pieces? Who are the winners and losers from the ECB interventions?

On the other hand the ECB was at the center of the introduction of the Euro and main architect of the pre-crisis ‘manic phase’ of capitalism when debt levels exploded across developed economies. This house of cards collapsed in 2008 and the ECB has since remained at the center of the EU policy making process. How did the crisis affect the role of the ECB in the broader set of EU institutions? These questions help us to understand the bigger picture in the current historical period in the EU, were austerity-ridden countries like Greece and Spain are gearing up for confrontation.
