Booklist Review

On 1 January 1999, the euro became the official currency of 11 nations belonging to the European Union. Consumers will not actually be able to purchase goods with euros until 2002. Even though the potential impact of this financial event is both dramatic and far-reaching, most people in the U.S. are unaware of what the euro is or why it exists. Economist Chabot, with a straightforward question-and-answer format, explains the origins of the euro and how and when it will be phased in as a common currency. He suggests how it will change European monetary policy and how it will affect international business and investment. Because the euro will symbolize what will become the largest economic bloc in the world and will offer a serious challenge to the supremacy of the U.S. dollar, Chabot's guide will be of interest to a wide range of readers. It can also be used to answer the coming flurry of reference questions. --David Rouse
