One Market, One Money: An Evaluation of the Potential Benefits and Costs of Forming an Economic and Monetary Union
Oxford University Press, 1992 - Business & Economics - 354 pages
The European Community is negotiating a new Treaty to establish the constitutional foundations of an economic and monetary union in the course of the 1990s. Coming hard on the heels of the completion of the single market by 1992, economic and monetary union, including a new European Central Bank and the ecu as the single currency, will be the most important milestone in the construction of the new Europe since the Treaty of Rome of 1957. This study provides the only comprehensive guide to the economic implications of economic and monetary union. Being the work of economists inside the EC Commission, it also reflects the considerations influencing the design of the union. The study provides a unique bridge between the insights of modern economic analysis and the work of the policy-makers preparing for economic and monetary union.
