In the course of European integration, national economic policy makers lose some effective policy instruments. Contributors to this omnibus volume analyze the "room for manoeuvring" available to national and EU economic and social policies under the conditions of the the Economic and Monetary Union (EMU). The text explores the possibilities for European co-ordination and discusses the tasks of employers' associations and labour unions on the national and EU level in wage, employment and macroeconomic policies. Section 1 of the book deals with the strengths and weaknesses of the EU in the context of global competition. In spite of national differences, many of the EU member countries share important characteristics. Section 2 addresses the need for and the feasibility of policy co-ordination in the EMU. With the start of the EMU, wage policy will have to bear the main burden of absorbing asymmetrical economic shocks. The authors from the DIW argue that a wage policy favourable to economic growth, employment and convergence has to be guided by the inflation target set by the European Central Bank (ECB) and by the long-term increase of productivity in individual countries. A precondition for this kind of wage policy is co-ordination between the main actors of EU ecnomic policy (ECB, EcoFin, social partners).
