Private Sector Involvement in the Euro The Power of Ideas

Edited By Stefan Collignon, Daniela Schwarzer Copyright 2003

    This book looks at the role of the Association for Monetary Union in Europe's role in the construction of the Euro. It argues that the AMUE played a prominent role in the adoption of a number of proposals related to the single currency and had a guiding influence on the transition from a market-let to an institution-centred approach to monetary union.
