The Euro and the Battle of Ideas, Paperback / softback Book


Why is Europe's great monetary endeavor, the Euro, in trouble?

A string of economic difficulties in Eurozone nations has left observers wondering whether the currency union can survive.

In this book, Markus Brunnermeier, Harold James, and Jean-Pierre Landau argue that the core problem with the Euro lies in the philosophical differences between the founding countries of the Eurozone, particularly Germany and France.

But the authors also show how these seemingly incompatible differences can be reconciled to ensure Europe's survival.

Weaving together economic analysis and historical reflection, The Euro and the Battle of Ideas provides a forensic investigation and a road map for Europe's future.
