The End of the Euro: The Uneasy Future of the European Union


The End of the Euro: The Uneasy Future of the European Union Cover


Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

The End of the Euro begins with an overview of the birth of the euro itself. Understanding this history is essential to understand the anomalies built into the project from the beginning. These anomalies form the subject of chapter two, along with how they led to the situation that turned Greece, Portugal, and Spain into euro-destroying economic disaster areas. Chapter three shows how this was not an unforeseeable situation, as Europes history is filled with earlier failed attempts to build monetary unions. Chapter four is focused on Germany, by far the most important country within EMU, and why the chances of Germany leaving the union are much higher than is generally assumed. The book concludes with an analysis of what lies in wait for the remains of the monetary union — and for a deeply divided and troubled continent in general. Either the EMU transforms itself fundamentally or it disintegrates.

Book News Annotation:

The editor-in-chief of the Flemish business magazine Trends explains the structural flaws of a monetary union, the importance of independent monetary policy for stabilizing individual countries, and the possible outcomes of the current eurozone funding crisis. The opening chapters revisit the history of the European monetary system (EMS) from its inception in 1979 and the creation of the European economic and monetary union (EMU) in 1999.
