Abstract: The euro, the common currency of the European Union (EU), was adopted to bring about higher degree of equality among the differing economies of the EU and enable them to develop together. However, in recent years the euro has been facing problems both on the economic and political front. While the member states are struggling because of the low economic growth rate, European Central Bank is finding it difficult to set an interest rate that would benefit all the variegated economies and simultaneously check inflation. Besides, the rejection of the EU Constitution by France and the Netherlands in a referendum, further fuelled the whole crisis. Some politicians and economists feel that the euro has failed to meet its objective and should therefore be withdrawn.

Pedagogical Objectives:

  • To discuss the options before the European Central Bank, in framing the monetary policy given the prevailing economic and political conditions within EU
  • To discuss the future of euro.
