An example of an institutional framework is the European Monetary System (EMS) introduced in the s to keep some intra-European FX rates within certain bands. An intradaily analysis of FX rates within the EMS gives some insights into the distinct characteristics of this monetary system at a time when the bands were still quite narrow. Making the European Monetary Union explains why a monetary union was established but not a fiscal union and why the framers couldn't deal with the issues of fiscal transfers, a Euro bond, a lender of last resort, and a Eurowide banking authority. It embeds the longstanding problems of intra-European exchange rate instability and regional imbalances into a global by: The Economic and Monetary Union (EMU) is an umbrella term for the group of policies aimed at converging the economies of member states of the European Union at three stages. The policies cover the 19 eurozone states, as well as non-euro European Union states.. Each stage of the EMU consists of progressively closer economic integration.

In a recent paper (Corsetti et al. ), we assess the reasons for Europe’s delayed recovery. We adopt an historical perspective, comparing the euro area with the European Monetary System in the s. The parallels are suggestive. In both cases, countries with weak fundamentals experienced capital flight. EMS became part of the wider project for EMU that was developed during the s. When the Euro came into being in , the EMS was effectively wound up, although the ERM remained in operation. How did the European Monetary System work?

Europe's financial crisis cannot be blamed on the Euro, James contends in this probing exploration of the whys, whens, whos, and what-ifs of European monetary union. The current crisis goes deeper, to conundrums that were debated but not resolved at the time of the Euro's invention. And, Euro or no Euro, these clashes will continue into the future. The European Monetary System (EMS) is of great interest to both academic economists and policymakers. The chapter also reviews the rules of the EMS exchange rate arrangement. The EMS consists of an agreement among the central banks of the European Community to manage intra-Community exchange rates and to finance exchange market interventions. Get this from a library!
