Towards a Resilient Eurozone Economic, Monetary and Fiscal Policies

Towards a Resilient Eurozone Economic, Monetary and Fiscal Policies

Author: John Ryan Format: Paperback / softback Release Date: 05/10/2015

This book examines the Eurozone crisis and the possibility of fiscal and political union in Europe, with contributions from some of the most respected experts on these topics. The book explains the complex, multidimensional crises in competitiveness, fiscal matters, banking and politics. During the crisis Germany has been criticized for misjudging the causes, focusing too much on fiscal deficits and insisting that the solution is fiscal consolidation and austerity. For many, especially those inspired by Keynesian economics, Germany has been seen as pushing the whole continent into a depression. By misjudging the causes of the crisis, insisting on widespread austerity, constraining the European central Bank (ECB) in its role of Lender of Last Resort for the sovereigns, rejecting the mutualization of Eurozone debt and providing financial help in small amounts and too late, Germany is perceived to be responsible for the possible break-up of the Eurozone. The aim of this book is to analyse whether this description, one that is shared by numerous policymakers, academics, pundits and opinion leaders, means that there is a lack of resilience in the Eurozone's economic, monetary and fiscal policies.

The Global Currencies Conundrum

The Global Currencies Conundrum

Author: John Ryan Format: Paperback / softback Release Date: 29/10/2014

This book discusses the emergence of a multi-polar currency system. With the US Dollar's hegemony as global reserve currency in question, it examines the role of the Federal Reserve in its decline, the emergence of the Euro in a multi-polar currency system and the Chinese influence in this most important policy arena. China's concerns about its US Dollar reserves are being amplified by the low returns of some of its investments in the United States. Today's reserve currency system effectively results in China lending to the US at very low interest rates. China needs to diversify out of the Dollar and it is this monetary policy that will fundamentally change the global currency scenario. China has been supportive of the Euro since its creation and is also lending support to the IMF's special drawing rights. At the same time, Chinese policy targets the internationalisation of the Renminbi and with that the creation of a multi-polar monetary order.
