    In we have had the 20th anniversary of the official introduction of the European single currency. The Maastricht Treaty laid down a roadmap for the creation of the euro. The roadmap led first to the establishment of the Economic and Monetary Union in January and then, three years later, to the introduction of physical euro notes.   The European Union Has a Currency Problem. Europe, as a single entity with a single currency, could, they argued, at last stand as a peer .

    The first step toward a common currency was the European Currency Unit (ECU), an accounting unit consisting of a basket of a specified amount of member countries’ currencies. Optimum currency area (OCA) An important question for the euro was whether there was a good economic reason to have a single money for the EU. The euro is the result of the European Union's project for economic and monetary union that came fully into being on 1 January and it is now the currency used by the majority of the European Union's member states, with all but Denmark bound to adopt is the currency used by the institutions of the European Union and in the failed treaty on a European Constitution it was to be.

      The common currency is not yet the single currency that European Union leaders dreamed of in , when the last customs duties were eliminated among European member nations. The United Kingdom will not join the single European currency with the first wave of countries on 1 January The Chancellor of the Exchequer, Gordon Brown, said in October that, although the government supported the principle of the single currency, Britain would not be ready to join at least until the second wave of countries join in

It surveys the initial arguments for and against the euro from the perspective of European identity and citizenship: on the pro side the single currency would promote European solidarity, and allow European welfare states to weather the storms of globalisation through a more united ‘social Europe’; those opposed viewed the peculiar structures of EMU – with a depoliticised, technocratic European Central Bank.

The euro is the single currency of the European Union. It is now implemented in 17 EU countries, which, for the sake of brevity, we call the euro area, but whose legally accurate name is the Economic and Monetary Union.

Those Member States which are not part of the euro area retain their own currencies and conduct their own monetary policies.

So, the degree of economic. Although the euro can be seen simply as a mechanism for perfecting the Single European Market, facilitating free trade among the members of the Euro-zone, it is also regarded by its founders as a key part of the project of European political integration.

Stiglitz, stated in his recent book “the Euro” that the European single currency had been “flawed from its beginning” (Stiglitz, ). But what exactly are the problems the Eurozone is.

Thereby, the national currencies of these eleven countries became denominations of a single currency. At the same time, the "Eurosystem" (which is composed of the European Central Bank (ECB) and the eleven national central banks of the participating Member States) assumed responsibility for the monetary policy of the euro area.

The book is divided into four main parts. Part I describes “Europe in crisis”; Part II discusses and analyses why the euro as a single currency should be seen as “flawed from the start”; Part III adopts a critical perspective on “misconceived policies”; and Part IV looks for “A way forward?”.
