Book Jacket: "Reflecting the most update-to-date coverage of institutional changes within the European Monetary Union, the fourteenth edition of De Grauwe's established textbook continues to encourage students to think critically about the sustainability of the Eurozone. The author uses an authoritative, concise and exciting approach to analyse theories and policies relating to monetary union, allowing students to develop a balanced understanding of different arguments and perspectives. Part One examines the implications of adopting a common currency while Part Two considers the problems associated with running a monetary union. Both parts analyse Europe's experience and the issues faced by the European Central Bank. Case studies throughout the text provide rich, real life and qualitative examples to help students connect with the concepts and policies presented. Additionally, each chapter ends with a conclusion recapping the core issues, and a set of questions, which encourages students to test their knowledge and stretch their understanding further."--PUBLISHER'S NOTE.

I jeszcze kilka zdań ze wstępu: "The present edition of the book also adds discussions about international changes that have been introduced since the eruption of the sovereign debt crisis and since Covid-19 pandemic hit us. An important one is the decision to create a banking union in the Eurozone, We analyse the ingredients of this banking union. We ask whether it is sufficient to deal with new banking crises and what it implies for the future of the Eurozone. We study the new policy tools (both monetary and fiscal) that have been created at the moment the pandemic shook the Eurozone economies. Finally, we take a forward-looking perspective and study the need for budgetary and political union to ensure the sustainability of the Eurozone." (s. X)
