George Georganas, was born in 1960 in Athens and was fortunate to go to school in that city.  He holds degrees in Mathematical Economics and Econometrics from the London School of Economics, in Economics from the University of Athens and a Master’s degree in Public Policy from the Kennedy School of Government at Harvard University.  After serving as a permanent official at the European Commission in Brussels for nearly ten years, he returned to Greece in 1995 to work in Finance.  His interest and research in contemporary Greek history, and especially on its financial aspects, dates only from 2012 and is clearly motivated by events current at that time.  He has found that defaults and bankruptcies occur in Greece far oftener than researchers and public opinion think.

For nineteen cloudless years, to date, he has been the husband of Sophia Mourouti-Georgana and the father of three teenage children.
