The European monetary system--past, present, and future by Peter Coffey( Book )

35 editions published between 1984 and 1987 in English and held by 573 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The European MJnetary System (EMS) is perhaps the only success story of the Common Market since the First Enlargement. Its success, particul arly where the conmercial use of the EO] is concerned, has taken nost experts by surprise. So Irn. lch so, that when the author tried to recamEIld to his students a suitable and substantial w::>rk of study and/or reference about the experience of the EMS and its possible future evolution -- no book could be found. Thus, the author set out to write the present w::>rk. The author's aim is not to give a historical account of the EMS. Rather, the intention is to place the experience in a rrajor historical context wherein the System is seen an irrpJrtant transitional phase on the road to the ~lementation of a full economic and rronetary union (EMU). When examining the earlier plans for an EMU which Si3!N the light of day between 1969 and 1970 (already so long ago:) clear reasons emerge why the original six founder Member States of the EEx::: should have found it logical to embark upon the road to an EMU - "provided the political will to do so existed". Thus, they had beCOIre highly integrated and were conducting half their trade with each other. Then, there was the desire to integrate still further -- eventually leading (perhaps) to a political union
The future of Europe by Peter Coffey( Book )

30 editions published between 1994 and 2004 in English and held by 515 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The book is divided into five parts, with part one analyzing issues surrounding the enlargement of the EU including criteria for membership, negotiations with candidate countries and possible implications. Part two covers the euro and EMU. In part three, the author examines the major areas of reform - institutional as well as policy - and sets forth his own proposals for future policy changes. Part four reviews the European Convention, while part five looks to the future of Europe. Also included are official documents on European unification that are often difficult to obtain. In conclusions, the author foresees that the EU will, at least for some time, become a confederation of nation states, rather than a federation as desired by some EU members

Main economic policy areas of the EEC, towards 1992 : the challenge to the Community's economic policies when the "real" Common Market is created by the end of 1992 by Peter Coffey( Book )

32 editions published between 1988 and 1990 in English and held by 464 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

At the end of 1992, things will never again be the same inside the European Economic Community (EEC), because, as that year draws to a close, the aims of the Single Act of European Union (SAEU), which became law in July, this year, will have become effective - thus creating a 'real' Common Market. This will mean that there will no longer be any obstacles to the free movement of goods between the Member States. Equally, and for the first time in the EEC's history, internal capital movements will be absolutely free, there will no longer be any exchange controls and it will be possible to freely establish financial services between EEC countries. Likewise, as currently being proposed by Lord Cockfield, wide variations in the levels of value added tax (VAT) between Member States will not be allowed. Also, in the case ~f the Common Agricultural Policy (CAP), it will no longer be possible (nor even necessary) to have the monetary compensatory amounts (MCA's). All these changes - but especially the increased freedom in capital movements - will have profound consequences for the different regions of the Community and it will be desirable to have a much more dynamic Regional Policy before 1993. Last, but by no means least, a greater number of decisions inside the Community will be made by majority voting and the Parliament will be endowed with enhanced powers

Main economic policy areas of the EEC by Peter Coffey( Book )

12 editions published in 1983 in English and held by 273 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

By Peter Coffey This is indeed a most opportune time for the publication of a serious, critical and independent study about the "Main Economic Policy Areas of the EEC". The European Economic Community is the world's most import ant commercial and trading bloc and its economic policies consequently have the most far-reaching implications for all countries in the world. The rest of the world is acutely conscious of the Community's trading policies. In turn, these policies (apart from those based on historical links - ante cedent to the EEC's formation) are strongly influenced by the internal economic policies of the Common Market - especially by the Common Agricultural Policy (CAP). At the present time, the Community finds itself, both in ternally and externally, at a crossroads. This crossroads takes the form of a choice between 'protectionism' or 'open ness'. Unfortunately, present evidence suggests that currently and in the immediately foreseeable future the former option has been chosen by the EEC

NAFTA-past, present and future by Peter Coffey( Book )

12 editions published in 1999 in English and held by 198 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

NAFTA has been described by one expert as being a partial customs union. It is, in any case, a special kind of free trade area because it consists of two highly developed economies and one large third world economy. In this book, the contributors examine the specific interests of the three member countries, Canada, Mexico, and the United States in the creation of NAFTA. They also assess the influence of this trade area on their economics. Looking to the future, doubts are expressed about the feasibility of using NAFTA (a hope expressed by the USA) as a stepping stone in the creation of a Free Trade Area of the Americas. Instead, the contributors see the consolidation of MERCOSUR in Latin America and the creation of a new Trans-Atlantic Market - as proposed by Sir Leon Brittan - as more likely developments
