Abstract

After experiencing a sharp recession at the beginning of the economic crisis, Estonia has recorded growth figures well above the EU average. Combined with the country’s austerity policies, this recovery has resulted in Estonia being described as a ‘champion of austerity’. In an interview with EUROPP editors Chris Gilson and Stuart A Brown, Estonia’s Minister of Finance Jürgen Ligi outlines the factors behind Estonia’s economic performance, why he believes there is no real austerity in Greece, and the benefits of being part of the eurozone.
