European Union at the Crossroads

A Critical Analysis of Monetary Union and Enlargement

9781858987620 Edward Elgar Publishing
Edited by the late Christos C. Paraskevopoulos, formerly Professor and Chair, Department of Economics, York University, Canada and President, Athenian Policy Forum Inc., Canada
Publication Date: 1998 ISBN: 978 1 85898 762 0 Extent: 224 pp
This book provides an up-to-date analysis of some of the key issues facing the European Union on the (potentially rocky) road towards monetary union and enlargement. A wide range of topics is covered from a diverse and critical perspective.

After addressing general questions concerning the deepening and widening of European integration, the authors include theoretical and empirical analyses of the implementation of EMU and its feasibility. They also consider convergence and development within the European Union, and the lessons to be learnt from the Nordic enlargement, as well as the experience of the Southern periphery. While the economic dimension is pervasive, the development of European Monetary Union will also be highly dependent on internal political developments and inter-member bargaining.
