The creation of the ECU in 1979 as part of the newly established European Monetary system was greeted with widespread scepticism. Few predicted the success it would have in private financial markets seeing it as an official reserve currency in Europe which would gradually replace the dollar and act as a vehicle for European policy making. This book offers an examination of the macroeconomic and microeconomic implications of ECU by a variety of contributors from academics to those in banking circles. Current research is examined and the theoretical and empirical aspects of the emergence of the ECU are considered to provide insights as to its future development. Paul de Grauwe's publications include "Monetary Interdependence and International Monetary Reform" and "Macroeconomic Theory for the Open Economy".
