Editorial Reviews

'The overall impression of the book is that it combines comprehensive and accurate reasoning with good accessibility in a concise way. Due to the topicality and the introductory approach, it is well suitable as a textbook for undergraduates as for all those interested in a critical discussion of economic governance on the European level.' - Bernd Berghuber, INTERVENTION - European Journal of Economics and Economic Policy
