Descriptions du produit

Unhappy Union The euro was supposed to create an unbreakable bond between the nations and people of Europe, a tangible, everyday symbol of a common future European citizenship. But when the debt crisis struck, the flaws of the half-built currency has brought the EU close to breaking point after decades of post-war integration. Deep fault-lines have opened up, not just between north and south, but between European institutions and the nation-states, and often between the rulers and the ruled, raising profound questions about Europe's democratic deficit. Belief in European institutions and national governments alike is waning, while radicals of both the left and the right a...

Both authors are reporters in Brussels for The Economist. The book seems to me to be far too much coloured by the Brussels view that Europe needs to move towards an ever closer union. I doubt whether the majority of European citizens want that. Alternative forms of European co-operation should have been discussed. The basic economic flaws of the common currency are treated only superficially. On the other hand, there are lots of descriptions of the various political maneuvers which have taken place on-stage and off-stage, in typical journalistic manner.

An in depth, heavy look at the Euro and the Euro Crisis 9 juin 2014
Par sien - Publié sur Amazon.com

Unhappy Union: How the Euro Crisis and Europe can be fixed (2014) by John Peet and Anton LaGuardia is a book that looks at the problems caused by the Euro, the history of ERM and where the authors proposes fixes for Europe.
Peet and LaGuardia have both been correspondents for The Economist on Europe. They know their subject matter intimately.
Chapter 1 looks at the depths of the Euro crisis, Chapter 2 goes through the history of Europe, Chapter 3 looks at how the EU works, chapter 4 the launch and early days of Europe and Chapter 5 and 6 go through the details of the crisis. Chapter 7 & 8 describe how Europe has changed and Chapter 9 look at the European Parliament, Chapter 10 and 11 on Europe’s new foreign policy and Chapter 12 compares the Euro Zone to the US and describes what the authors can be done to fix Europe.
The book has some interesting revelations, such as that the Germans did seriously think about throwing Greece out of the Euro. The chapters on history are fun to read and even amusing in parts. The chapters on the crisis are hard going, the Byzantine details of the way Europe works make for difficult and fairly dull reading despite the enormously serious nature of the crisis they are describing. Chapter 10 and 11 highlight the problems with the EU.
The book describes the curious experiment that the Euro is. It seems the authors may inadvertently be fuelling scepticism of the Euro as they painstakingly describe the mess of European decision making. The chapters comparing the recoveries in the US to the Eurozone lend weight, again inadvertently to the idea that the Euro was a mistake.

This intriguing account of the economic and political issues facing the European Union left me a bit cold. On the surface it appears to be a good read: a short book (180 small pages, excluding endnotes and additional reading) about a highly relevant set of issues. That, and a Wall Street Journal review, sold me.

The Wall Street Journal had said the writing was a bit too technical and I thought I could work through that. It's a fair criticism and there's nothing too bad about highly technical writing, though the book loses some of its interest when it gets too technical. But for me the issue was not how technical the writing was, but rather a very poor method of organization, which wound up resulting in the technical writing.

What I mean by this is the following: the EU has two basic philosophical problems: 1) it has 28 members but only 18 use the Euro, and 2) there is a gap between it and the democratic process, and associated gaps between it and national governments. Almost everything else can be explained around and through these philosophical premises, from the political aspects of those who are in the union but not the currency, between members who are in the currency, between debtors and creditors, between northern and southern countries, between austerity countries and heavy-spenders, and so on and so forth. The steps taken to address these conflicts can then be explained. So if you mention these things at the beginning, the rest of the writing process becomes much easier. You do not have to resort to the highly technical stuff, or when you do it comes off a good deal smoother. In essence, you start big, then go to details to illustrate.

These authors, however, started with the details, then tried to go to the larger philosophical problems two-thirds of the way through--that is to say, they wrote the book backwards, and it caused them to engage in almost illiterate babble for much of the first several chapters. With some books this might work; with this one it didn't, because the subject matter is somewhat complicated. Even for me.

So, I suppose, what I am saying is that while I have a better understanding of some of the problems facing the EU, and thus can invest my money better--which was why I got this book--I also feel that the knowledge I have isn't as clear as it could and should be, and that this is a result of author incompetence, rather than slowness of mind. I am not saying this book is worthless, but I am saying to be cautious when buying and to look for alternatives which may be superior as resources.
