Instructor(s):
Description:
This class provides an introduction into the economic integration process in Europe. It starts with an overview from an historical perspective and lays out the EU’s institutional framework. The second part focuses on the microeconomics of integration relating to trade, market size, growth and factor markets. In the remainder of the course we analyze various policies (common agricultural policy, regional policy, competition policy, and trade policy), after which we turn to the question of the EU as an optimum currency area, and the interplay of monetary, fiscal and financial policies. Along the course, we touch on current and policy relevant topics such as the EU’s Recovery Fund, Brexit, Draft Budgetary Plans in fall of 2020, ECB policies, etc.
