The shape of the world economy is changing. Globalisation and regionalism have led to the development of powerful but interdependent economic blocs. Much economic potential has shifted from the Atlantic to the Pacific area. In view of thisThe European Economyargues that economists need a broader, worldwide base of information if these processes and their effect on Europe are to be fully understood. Topics discussed include:
* Europe's experience of the growing trend of regionalism
* the single market
* plans for economic union
* EU enlargement
* Europe's triad rivals
* EU external trade and trade relations
* technology and innovation
* environmental issues
This fresh approach highlights the issues which will challenge European countries into the twenty-first century.
