This course studies the integration of the economics of the member
states of the European Union (EU) since the Treaty of Rome. Areas
covered include: economic policymaking institutions and the EU
budget; economic theory of a customs union and a single market;
imperfections in the single market, including imperfect competition
and unemployment ; monetary integration and monetary union; common
policy and reforms; and widening of the EU to the east and south.
The course emphasizes relevant current events, with which students
are expected to be familiar--for instance by reading The Financial
Times, available in the WEUR library.
