About this book

What will joining the EU mean for the new Eastern member states and their economies? This book offers a detailed study of the macroeconomic and structural adjustment burden. It envisages a real currency appreciation stemming from price convergence, capital inflows and weak structural change. The widespread belief that an Eastern enlargement of the Union would be overwhelmingly to the detriment of the present EU (budgetary costs, locational decisions, trade deficits) is rejected. The authors discuss the lack of competitiveness of Eastern countries and their need for structural adjustments (in the financial sector, in agriculture, and in manufacturing) in order for them to survive and thrive in their new economic environment.

Reviews

'This book reads well and provides interesting theoretical and empirical material on possible consequences of future enlargement. ' - Dariusz Rosati, National Bank of Poland

'This valuable collection of papers makes a real contribution in edging the enlargement debate towards relatively under-played considerations. It asks us to reconsider the funamental issue of whether it is economically sensible for CEECs to be steering a course almost on automatic pilot towards Brussels and the acquis.' - George Blazyca, European Foreign Affairs
