About this product
- DescriptionThe integration process of 'The Common Market of the South' (MERCOSUR) has been characterized by serious ecomic turbulence, including the devaluation of the Brazilian currency and the severe Argentinean monetary crisis. As a response to these difficulties, the adoption of monetary union has emerged as one possible solution to the financial uncertainty which has plagued this region. Whereas some believe MERCOSUR should become a free trade area, others are convinced that thing less than full monetary union can bring stability to the region and ease the financial fragility of the member countries. This book discusses the future of MERCOSUR, focusing on monetary union and macroecomic policy co-ordination, and addresses a number of important questions including: * is it possible, or even desirable, to achieve monetary integration? * what would the pre-conditions be for establishing such a union? * what would the convergence criteria be for joining the monetary union? * what are the expected ecomic consequences for the member countries? These questions are all addressed with particular reference to the experience of EMU and the lessons which can be learnt by MERCOSUR countries, in terms of the difficult transitions they may have to face. The book brings together a host of distinguished British, Argentinean and Brazilian ecomists to elucidate the critical policy issues surrounding the merits of monetary union in South America. Financial ecomists, international monetary ecomists, international relations experts, academics and practitioners interested in the issues surrounding ecomic and monetary union will all value the perceptive insights found in this volume.
