Eastern-Caribbean-sm The Eastern Caribbean Economic and Currency Union: Macroeconomics and Financial Systems The Eastern Caribbean Economic and Currency Union (OECS/ECCU) is one of four currency unions in the world. This book provides a comprehensive analysis of the key issues in the OECS/ECCU, including its organization and economic and financial sector linkages and policy recommendations to foster economic growth. It combines coverage of various analytical topics with a discussion of the institutional setup of the economic and monetary union.
South-Africa-FINAL Building a Common Future in Southern Africa
The Southern African Customs Union (SACU) faces challenges related to the volatility of its customs revenue, the management of fiscal policy, and high levels of unemployment. However, significant opportunities lie ahead. This book offers policy options to address these challenges and realize future opportunities through the analysis of macroeconomic and structural issues facing SACU countries.


Germany in an Interconnected World Economy
The German economy has continually displayed a capacity to regenerate itself. Its emergence from the Great Recession—and especially its ability to generate jobs—has been widely, and rightly, lauded. With its success, Germany has been called on to assist the global recovery. This edited volume provides a broad overview of German economic growth and international connections over the past half century. It also looks at Germany’s role in the post-crisis global economy and offers some policy proposals.
