The Euro: An Essential Guide
"This introduction to a historically important transition provides both historical and theoretical background and engaged prognosis. Coffey examines the reasons why the EEC made its original decision to move along the road to EMU "provided the political will to do so existed", the earlier attempts at creating EMU, and the present situation. He assesses the Euro's qualities as a currency, examining the institutional arrangements (notably the European Central Bank and the European System of Central Banks), the policy choices, and the possible implications for countries both inside and outside the Euro Zone."--BOOK JACKET.
