The European Union has had, and continues to have, far reaching consequences for its member states. This, the third book in The State and European Union series, considers the way in which the European Union has affected autonomy in macroeconomic policy-making of the member states. It begins with an introduction to economic ideas, and explores current themes surrounding monetary and fiscal policy and European integration, including economic policy co-ordination, objectives in national policy-making and motivations for participating in the European Monetary System. Particular focus is given to the larger member states: * the United Kingdom * Germany * France * Italy. The European Union and National Macroeconomic Policy draws together leading political scientists and economists to explore how European Union actions have influenced the attitudes and strategies of key national and international actors, such as political elites, national bureaucracies, financial markets and central banks.
They constantly return to the crucial question: have the pressures emanating from the European Union had a greater impact on state autonomy than wider international or domestic pressures from influential business groups or bankers? 1.
