  4. Monetary Strategies for Joining the Euro

    Monetary Strategies for Joining the Euro

    Edited by György Szapáry, Jürgen von Hagen
    In this book, well-known economists and policymakers look at the next step in the integration process for accession countries: accession to European Monetary Union (EMU). They debate which monetary and exchange rate strategies are optimal during the run-up to EMU, and consider the conflict that may arise in trying to meet both the exchange rate stability and the Maastricht inflation criteria. The impossible trinity between monetary independence, exchange rate stability and free capital flows is also addressed, as is the question of the effects of structural changes on the real exchange rate. Estimates of the ‘Balassa–Samuelson effect’ on five of the new member states, and the experiences of Portugal and Greece in their run-up to EMU are discussed, and lessons for the economic policies of the new EU member states are illustrated.

  5. Monetary Theory

    Monetary Theory

    Alan A. Rabin
    Alan Rabin argues that new Keynesian and new classical macroeconomics, which have dominated the literature and textbooks, have crowded the monetary-disequilibrium hypothesis, or orthodox monetarism, off the intellectual stage. Trying to remedy this imbalance, the author concentrates on what he judges to be the essentials of monetary theory. Learn More

  8. Money Markets and Politics

    Money Markets and Politics

    Jens Forssbæck, Lars Oxelheim
    The dramatic evolution of financial markets in the 1980s and 1990s, accompanied by increasing institutional integration between nations (most notably in the EU), have fostered a widespread belief that governments – particularly those of small economies – have essentially lost the power to pursue sovereign, independent economic policies. At the same time, it is widely assumed that the loss of monetary-policy control is a major opportunity cost for a country adopting a rigid exchange-rate regime or, in the European context, for countries joining the EMU This book sheds light on these arguments.

  9. Structural Challenges for Europe

    Structural Challenges for Europe

    Edited by Gertrude Tumpel-Gugerell, Peter Mooslechner
    The main thrust of the book is that the sharing of mutual experiences is important for generating an acceptable policy mix, both at EU and national levels. The contributors highlight key financial issues, including the role of FDI and of foreign banks in the still ‘under-banked’ acceding countries, the re-launch of social security systems and the fiscal challenges of financing the catch-up process. They also examine the ongoing EU debate surrounding the application of the Stability and Growth Pact in Central and Eastern European Countries (CEECs) and go on to explore the contrasting evidence that some CEECs have shown more extensive privatisation efforts than some EU countries.

  10. Banking Supervision at the Crossroads

    Banking Supervision at the Crossroads

    Edited by Thea Kuppens, Henriëtte Prast, Sandra Wesseling
    This book charts the consequences for banking supervision of two stylized developments that over the last decade have characterized the global financial landscape: the integration of cross-sector and cross-border financial services. Both developments inevitably call for a supervisory response and the authors discuss what form and direction this should take. They also address a number of other important subjects including the new Capital Accord (Basel 2), the convergence of supervisory practices, procyclicality, financial conglomerates, deposit insurance and a brief history of the interplay between banking supervision and bank behaviour.

  14. The State, the Market and the Euro

    The State, the Market and the Euro

    Edited by Stephanie A. Bell, Edward J. Nell
    Is the theory of money that underlies most modern macroeconomics well-grounded? What determines the value of a currency, and how is the state’s power over its currency related to its ability to stabilize prices and employment? Charles Goodhart’s classic paper ‘The Two Concepts of Money: Implications for the Analysis of Optimal Currency Areas’ which first raised these questions is reprinted here, and the distinguished authors expand its line of argument and comment on its central themes. The issues discussed are of fundamental importance in contemporary monetary theory and policy. The State, the Market and the Euro presents two sharply contrasting theories of money – Chartalist and Metallist – and the resulting equally sharply contrasting approaches to macroeconomic policy.

  16. Financial Supervision in Europe

    Financial Supervision in Europe

    Edited by Jeroen J.M. Kremers, Dirk Schoenmaker, Peter J. Wierts
    Financial Supervision in Europe discusses the implications of financial market integration for the structure of financial supervision in the European Union. It argues that, at present, negotiations on a European system of supervisors might lead to a compromise that may prove sub-optimal given the evolution of national supervisory models and international financial markets. As integration continues and the most appropriate national supervisory models emerge from a best practices approach, a reform of the organisational structure of supervision in Europe may become necessary.
