Has the Great Recession harmed the long-term growth prospects of the Eurozone economy?

In this audio from Philippe Weil is interviewed by Viv Davies and they discuss the above question. The CEPR Business Cycle Dating Committee recently concluded that there is not yet enough evidence to call a business cycle trough in the Eurozone. Instead, the committee has announced a 'prolonged pause' in the recession. This Vox Talk discusses the possible directions that this situation could lead to and questions whether the Great Recession has harmed the Eurozone’s long-term growth prospects to the extent that meagre growth could become the 'new normal'.
