The Economics of the European Union and the Economies of Europe

Larry Neal and Daniel Barbezat

This text attempts to integrate economic analysis, political logic, and historical interpretation to convey an American perspective on the movement towards European integration, the external constraints it faces and has faced, and the interplay of national concerns, both economic and political, within the vision of a united Europe. Beginning with the American perspective on Europe, the first part of the text treats Europe as a natural economic unit, (1945-1989) divided into separate political units that attempted to remain distinct from one another. Part II shows the continuing political and economic diversity of Europe by examining the post World War II economic history of the major states and groups of minor states. The book concludes with a discussion of the future of the European Union in an evolving world economy.
