Book Description

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.
