Why did this system come to an end? Three Major Structural Changes Since 1973 Basically, the very success of this style of economic management led to the endogenous erosion of its stabilizing properties. Three structural transformations explain its demise. EMU is partially a tentative answer to some of these transformations. First, mass production techniques and organizations experienced a productivity slow-down, initiated in the American economy, but diffused to other industrialized countries after the two oil shocks.

One must, of course, differentiate among prospective national experiences here. For Germany, Austria, and the Netherlands the currency will for a period continue to be undervalued in PPP terms in comparison with the immediate past record of their national currencies. Already in anticipation of monetary union these currencies declined in relation to the US dollar and sterling. This provided useful relief to producers in these countries. Italians and Spaniards, whose currencies already increased in value in relation to the DM in anticipation of their EMU entry, entered a harder currency than they had previously experienced, with major adjustment challenges.

Nevertheless, this fifth paradox opposes the general political assessment of the desirability of EMU to the economic costs of the transformations it requires for some countries. Unifying Europe At the Risk Of Balkanization This leads to the next paradox. Clearly, the Single Market Act, then the Maastricht Treaty, and ultimately the Amsterdam Treaty do aim to promote European integration and unification.
