Economist Angel Ubide presents a compelling argument: Without renewed Europe-wide political will that clearly sets out the value of a shared future for all in the euro zone, the prospects for European Monetary Union (EMU) are limited. He proposes three ways to secure the bloc’s survival. His analysis, while presenting little that is new or controversial, nevertheless draws from an obvious depth of knowledge and insight. getAbstract highly recommends this report to policy makers and market participants for its astute take on how EMU can move forward.
In this summary, you will learn
- How the European Monetary Union (EMU) barely survived its crisis,
- Why it remains in a perilous position and
- How “reengineering EMU” will require work in three areas.
