Course Description

 

This course examines both microeconomic and macroeconomic policy issues pertaining to European integration. From a micro perspective, we look at trade liberalization and labor market integration, with particular focus on policy issues like the politics of agricultural price support and regional subsidies. From a macro perspective, we focus instead on the interaction of multiple fiscal policies with only one monetary policy. The emphasis here is on the challenges of policy coordination among independent political entities, starting from the aftermath of German unification (and the ramifications it had in a fixed exchange rate system) to the recent national debt crisis that followed the great recession.

 

Economics of European Integration (Econ 369) is an economics course with regional emphasis on Europe. In the past 70 years Europe has gone through a gradual process of economic integration that has in many respects anticipated the progress toward the global economy. Econ 369 focuses on several issues arising from the coordination between independent states in order to achieve economic integration, growth and prosperity. The main challenges being explored are: a common labor market, free movement of goods and capital, a common monetary policy, and the necessary fiscal policy coordination.
