"Economic Convergence and Monetary Union in Europe is a substantial overview of the prospects for monetary union in post- Maastricht Europe." --European Access Economic Convergence and Monetary Union in Europe is the first substantial overview of the prospects for monetary union in post- Maastricht Europe. It provides a careful and thorough analysis of the communities--business, industrial, and government--to whom successful integration of monetary union seems crucial. Experts from the UK, France, Germany, and Italy appraise convergence, examine the preconditions for union, and project ramifications for their respective nations. The external role of a European currency is assessed, as well as European cohesion, relations with the East, and the costs of converting to a common currency. Written in non-technical terms, Economic Convergence and Monetary Union in Europe is an authoritative and accessible account of this important issue. Students and professionals in economics, public policy, European studies, management, and business will find this book to be compelling reading.
