Over the past five years Europe has continued its growth towards closer financial ties and economic integration. Through specific policies on subfields including agriculture, trade, competition, banking and economic governance the economic fortunes of individual European countries are more closely tied than ever. The aim of this comprehensive collection is to provide an overview of these policy developments for those who wish to gain an understanding of European economic integration without assuming prior knowledge of economics or using technical terms but rather is written in an accessible style and geared towards a wider-readership. On top of this, the volume also deals with many of the current issues that the European economic integration is faced with such as the global financial economic and sovereign debt crisis.

Editorial Reviews

"This book provides a valuable service, translating a vast literature on the economics of European integration into a one-stop collection of easily accessible essays. The authors are all leading scholars in their respective specialties. For anyone interested in why European nations choose to integrate, this is a must read." - Benjamin Jerry Cohen, Department of Political Science, University of California, Santa Barbara, USA"In times where Europe is in deep crisis, where its political vision is being questioned, where its economic performance is miserable, where its economic management is widely criticized, it becomes all the more important to have a well-balanced analysis of Europe's problems. This collection of essays, written by top researchers, is such a much needed thought process. A must reading for all those that have an interest in European affairs." - Alfred Steinherr, John F. Welch College of Business, Sacred Heart University, Luxembourg and Honorary Chief Economist European Investment Bank, Luxembourg "Understanding the process of economic integration requires an 'interdisciplinary' approach bridging different economic sub-disciplines. Yet such an approach is increasingly difficult, as economists have developed their specialized models and modes of thinking. Bridging these sub-disciplines in economics is essential yet also more daunting than ever. That's why this book is particularly welcome. Its collection of chapters by leading scholars provides for a clear and exciting discovery of how economic analyses of different flavors helps in understanding the European integration process. This book will be cherished by scholars and students of European economic integration." - Paul De Grauwe, European Institute, London School of Economics and Political Science, UK
