    This book places the whole issue of monetary union in its wider political economic context. The authors discuss:
    * the effect of EMU on fiscal and monetary policies
    * Central bank independence
    * the impact of EMU on unemployment
    * ERM II
    * international perspectives.
    Drawing on their experience in the European financial markets, the authors use a non-technical approach to discuss these issues - both in a general european sense and more specifically, Germany, the UK and Italy.
