Implications of the Euro
To date, critical analysis of the Economic and Monetary Union project has largelybeen advanced from the centre-right spectrum of British politics. Comparablequestioning from the centre-left, whilst once a powerful phenomenon, has morerecently failed to find a coherent voice. Yet the European fault-line cannot becharacterised as a neat left–right issue. There are noticeable divisions in opinionacross British business, the trade union movement and within the Labour Party.
Implications of the Euro
offers a unique insight into this key debate from the ‘centre-left’, eurosceptic viewpoint. This book provides a rigorous analysis of the salienteconomic and political issues of concern, such as: the economics of a singlecurrency, employment and social implications, in addition to issues of sovereigntyand political determination. The arguments presented in this volume highlight theemergence of a coherent alternative to deepening economic integration as aplatform to build a just and equitable society.Contributions are drawn from leading academics, trade union leaders andprominent politicians, both from the Labour Party and the wider progressive left inBritish politics. This informative and thought provoking book will be indispensablereading for students and practitioners in economics, politics and internationalrelations, as well as those interested in this highly contentious topic.
