European Monetary Integration
Past, Present and Future
This highly topical book examines the development and future prospects for economic and monetary union in Europe. European Monetary Integration examines the background to economic and monetary union from a historical perspective that distinguishes between national and supranational currency areas, and an optimal currency area theory. The gradualist transition process is also considered.
The authors, leading academics from five European countries, consider the principal economic policies to be followed in achieving economic and monetary union. The role of the European central banks and monetary policy is examined, along with fiscal policy in monetary union and the operation and policies of the labour markets. The authors discuss the economic relationships between the euro area and other European economies including the transition and accession economies of Eastern Europe.

What Reviewers Are Saying
`In European Monetary Integration, the editors E.J. Pentecost and A. van Poeck, put together a series of papers that provide a useful overview of the continuing efforts by the European Union to establish, maintain, and extend a common European currency. The editors have done well in presenting analyses that cover the past of the system before addressing the current and future issues . . . European Monetary Integration presents a series of informative papers that provide well-balanced expositions of empirical material and analyses. The collection is quite appropriate for an audience with less-profound knowledge of the issues.' -- Antony P. Mueller, Journal of Markets & Morality `This book is an excellent contribution to the understanding of the past, present and future of the European monetary integration . . . This book is written in a very pedagogical manner and should be part of the literature for graduate and undergraduate students of monetary economics.' -- Estela Bee Dagum, Recensioni e Segnalazioni Bibliografiche
