Monetary Integration in Europe: Ideas and Evolution

Show Summary Details


The Economic and Monetary Union (EMU) resulted from the convergence of ideas about the aim of monetary policy and the design of EMU. It will lead to a further revival of the EU if there remains a clear consensus and widespread support for common ideas on the objectives of economic and monetary policy. On the other hand, the EMU may pose a serious risk to the integration process if its costs and benefits are unevenly spread across EU member states, sectors, regions, and citizens.
