Monetary Integration Between Economies with Different Financial Structures
Stefan Collignon ()
Working Papers from American Institute for Contemporary German Studies-
Today, a variety of financial systems exists in Europe. In view of EMU the question then arises what kind of "institutional convergence" may be required to enable the future European System of Central Banks (ESCB) to function efficiently. With respect to payment systems and settlement assets the paper points out that even if a variety of payment instruments may continue to exist the functional convergence will be assured by EMU.
