Seminar paper from the year 2007 in the subject Business economics - Economic Policy, grade: 2,0, University of Hohenheim (Lehrstuhl für Außenwirtschaft), course: International Institutions, 20 entries in the bibliography, language: English, abstract: The eurozone member countries have agreed to permanently abandon economic policy instruments such as monetary and exchange rate policies and to accept the European Central Bank (ECB) as the decision making body to determine the common monetary policy, notably the interest rates and the money supply. It goes without saying that such an institution is not able to fine-tune its decisions in order to meet particular economic challenges in certain member countries. In this respect, the eastward enlargement of the European Monetary Union (EMU) will bring major challenges to the ECB, as varying inflation rates in different member countries and the determination of a single interest rate may have disruptive consequences. From the viewpoint of the eastward enlargement of the eurozone the paper illustrates the various challenges the ECB inevitably has to face. Further, it describes the reform of the ECB Governing Council. An important question concerning the ECB is the following: Is there a danger for the single European monetary policy from letting Central and Eastern European Countries (CEEC) join the eurozone or from letting them join the eurozone too early?
