Introduction:

Beginning with a succinct introduction about where, when and, tentatively, why modern world growth began, the lecture will then focus on the long run analysis of growth and integration that took place there after the Second World War. The relationship between economics and politics in the EU during that period will be discussed, paying special attention to the arrival of the EMU (European Monetary Union), and the real and potential perils of the asymmetry between a unified Monetary Policy versus a divergent Fiscal Policy. If the divergence grows, then the future of the Euro and the EU itself could be put at risk.
