Since the introduction of the euro on 1 January 1999, there has been lively debate in the UK among politicians and the media as to the pros and cons of Economic and Monetary Union. Should the UK join Euroland or not? What does EMU really mean for our economy and national sovereignty? And what voice do citizens of Britain or elsewhere in Europe have in running their currency? One thing is clear: more information is needed. People from the world of politics, economics and the general public need impartial information to have a reasoned debate on the Euro. People want to make up their own minds. This book, edited by Stephen Haseler and Jacques Reland, professors at London Guildhall University and with an introduction by Lord Simon, former Minister for the Single Market, does just that, collecting together essays from respected practitioners on many aspects of the Euro in a way that is accessible to general reader, Europhile and Eurosceptic alike.
