This book brings together leading economists from continental Europe, the U.S. and the U.K. to examine the slow growth and other problems experienced by the Eurozone in it's early years, and the challenges which is now faces. The authors investigate the operation of monetary and fiscal policy in the Eurozone, the extent of structural reform and the reasons for it, and other topics from the possible inflation increases in the 2002 notes and coin changeover to financial integration.
DAVID COBHAM is Professor of Economics at Heriot-Watt University in Edinburgh, UK. He has published extensively in the field of UK monetary policy, and also has substantial interest in the fields of European monetary integration, financial systems and Middle East economies.
