This volume contains studies of the three European economic unions which already have a considerable historical experience to draw upon: thc Belgium-Luxembourg Economic Union, Benelux, and the European Coal and Steel Community. Thc book is not primarily concerned with the success or failure of these unions in increasing economic efficiency and raising standards of living. The purpose of the studies is rather to examine the mechanics of the construction of economic union. Can commercial unions be built without a unification of national tax policies or without a unification of monetary policies ? Can a partial union covering only some commodities (e.g. coal and steel) work effectively if it does not cover other closely related activities (e.g. transport) ? Can an economic union work effectively if wage rates are fixed on different principles in the member countries ? In an introduction to the studies Professor Meade comments on eleven main issues of this kind which are suggested by the actual experience of the three unions under study. Problems such as these are likely to be of great importance to the United Kingdom if she becomes a member of the European Economic Community.
Professor J. E. Meade is at present Professor of Political Economy in the University of Cambridge. He was a member and later Director of the Economic Section of the Cabinet Offices. His writings include The Theory of International Economic Policy (1951 and 1955), Problems of Economic Union (1953), and The Theory of Customs Unions (1955).
