Is the EMU a viable common currency area? a VAR analysis of regional business cycles

Michael Kouparitsas ()

Economic Perspectives, 1999, issue qiv, 2-20

Abstract: Many commentators are skeptical about the long-run viability of the European Monetary Union (EMU). This article compares the EMU with a well-functioning currency union, the U.S., and finds that they are similar based on key criteria. On the basis of this analysis, the EMU may be as viable as the U.S. monetary union.
