The Heads of State and Government at the European Council meeting in Maastricht definitely decided to embark upon the creation of Economic and Monetary Union by, at the latest, the beginning of 1999, and in doing so opted for a relatively short but difficult journey that should bring the European Community all the benefits one could expect from such an undertaking. However, the question still remains of how economic and monetary union will really affect the day-to-day policy making of the national civil servants involved, particularly in the areas of monetary and fiscal policies.;Can national policymakers adopt a ""sit-and-wait"" policy or does uconomic and monetary union really entail a dangerous voyage between Scylla and Charybdis? Will economic and monetary union undermine the sovereignty of national governments because the Maastricht Treaty will give the EC the competence to dictate its own will? Are the benefits of Economic and Monetary Union for the Member States really as great as expected? These and other issues are assessed in this book which, after an assessment of the achievements of the Maastricht European Council, covers the main implications of a European monetary policy and closer economic cooperation for the relevant policies of the Member States, the division of the competencies between Community and member countries and the forthcoming prospects for new EC policies (regional policy, the EC budget and fiscal union)
