The tenth edition of Economics of Monetary Union provides a concise
analysis of the theories and policies relating to monetary union.
The author analyses both the costs and benefits associated with
exiting the eurozone, as well as presenting a discussion of the
banking union, the current issues surrounding the TARGET2 payment
system, and the role of the European Central Bank. In Part One the
author examines the implications of adopting a common currency,
assessing each country's benefit from being a member of the
eurozone, while also questioning whether other parts of the world
would gain from monetary unification. Part Two of the book looks at
the problems of running a monetary union by analysing Europe's
experience and the issues faced by the European Central Bank.
