Creating the European monetary union between diverse and unequal nation states is one of the biggest social experiments in history. Waltraud Schelkle's new book, which will form the basis of the discussion at this event, offers an explanation of how the euro experiment came about and was sustained despite a severe crisis, and provides a comparison with the monetary-financial history of the United States.
