The Optional Euro While Sterling holds the Ring
Christopher Houghton Budd
ISBN: 978 0 948229 79 4
Written as a competition entry, this publication examines the role and position of the Euro in the light of the continued existence of the pound sterling. Its thesis is that the Euro can function as an optional currency for those for whom this works, but it is not an optimal currency, being more political then economic in its conception and management.
