Chicago Matter, Chicago IL
Matter

When starting a new venture, innovators need to consider a number of things — among the most important of these are issues relating to intellectual property. In many circumstances, failure to identify and take steps to protect intellectual property can make or break a company. While trade secrets represent one important form of intellectual property that can give a startup an advantage over its competition, it is often overlooked and can be lost by accident or by misappropriation.

Pavlos Roufos - "A Happy Future is a Thing of the Past"
Seminary Co-Op Bookstore, Chicago IL
Seminary Coop Bookstores

Greece’s social and economic conditions have been irreversibly transformed due to austerity measures imposed by the European troika and successive Greek governments. These stringent restructuring programs were intended to make it possible for Greece to avoid default and improve its debt position, and to reconfigure its economy to escape forever the burden of past structural deficiencies. But things have not gone according to plan. Eight years later, none of these targets have been met. If the programs were doomed to fail from the start, as many claim, what were the real objectives of such devastating austerity?Pavlos Roufos answers this key question in an insightful, critical analysis of the origins and management of the 2010 Greek economic crisis. Setting the crisis in its historical context, Roufos explores the creation of the Eurozone, its “glorious” years, and today’s political threats to its existence.
