Extremely insightful. One of the few books to apply austrian economics to the Euro and the European Central Bank. It is a vital book to understand the dynamics of the European Union. Read full review

"Straight forward analysis of the European sovereign debt crisis in the Austrian tradition. It is a very good summery of the Austrian Business Cycle Theory and focuses on how the Euro is used against its original setup as a transfer-vehicle. It does not exclude the possibility of a monetary union in general, but only under non-deficit spending policies in all countries.
I like the analytical approach which reminds me of von Mises "Wertfreiheit", although it clearly takes side against demand oriented economics."
