Yearbook of the Euro
European Macroeconomics and Governance
On 17 February Bruegel will host the presentation of the The Euro Yearbook, a project of the Spanish Financial Studies Foundation, Fundación de Estudios Financieros, and Fundación ICO. It aims to describe, analyse and discuss the process leading to a European Monetary Policy. As with the previous Euro Yearbook 2013, this year’s study has been directed by Fernando Fernández Méndez de Andés, professor at the IE Business School.
The presentation of this second report in the collection will go over the contents dealing with the current reality of the Monetary Union.
The director of the study, Fernando Fernández Méndez de Andés, will summarize the authors’ insights on the relevance of euro in international trade and finance arenas, the European financial integration process, the new mechanisms for the banking union, and the challenges in bringing about a fiscal, economic and social union in Europe, among others.
A list of ten lessons learned on this year’s euro development will be also presented to open up the discussion on the study that, to quote its Director, “is not an academic study, but rather a study of policy… to help monetary union become more sustainable, and in doing so help the Eurozone overcome its structural crisis of low growth, excess debt and unacceptable levels of unemployment.”
