The EuroZone Crisis – feat. Greece, Angela Merkel, Slavoj Žižek & IMF

We’ve all heard of EuroVision. But there’s another song that’s being sung across Europe – the peoples’ chants of protest against Europe’s austerity measures. First we’ll hear some of the leading and loudest voices in this competition such as Greece, Spain and Ireland, who are fighting back against austerity with people power. Then we’ll turn to the contest’s illustrious judges: Germany’s Chancellor Angela Merkel, Slovenian philosopher-rockstar Slavoj Žižek, and IMF dminatrix, err… director, Christine Lagarde. Join Robert Foster as he examines the Eurozone crisis and the causes behind it: Is it all economics and budgets? Is this ideological class war? What are the solutions? And what on earth is Australia doing competing in this EuroZone song contest? All these questions and more will be tackled as we dive into this most bizarre of modern European traditions. Welcome to the EURODIVISION CONTEST.
