EUROPE AS AN ECONOMIC UNION (ideas from Poland)

Pros:

·         more foreign investors in a country

·         reduction of duty tax, which facilitates export and import

·         free exchange of products between member states

·         possibility of working abroad or setting up one’s own business there

·         making an opposition to great world economic powers (like Russia)

·         a chance for a country to be in the fast growing economic and monetary area.

·         economy of the European Union is more efficient than of individual countries

·         joining the monetary union provides a big injection of funds for weaker economies

·         single currency eliminates transaction costs.

·         one central bank is needed - because it contributes to the stability of the entire development of a common economy of the European Union .

·         common central bank looks at the Union as a whole - and thus contributes to the disappearance of differences between countries.

·         single currency will lead to greater transparency and improve the economic balance - it will be easier to compare wages and the costs of production in different areas of the European Union

·         introduction of the common currency in can stabilize inflation.
