URL :  Coordination of economic policies in the EU
Author : ...
Detail : eBook Edition: 2002

More specifically, the rationale for economic policy co-ordination rests on the following grounds. Co-ordination is needed to take account of direct cross-border spillovers of national policies on neighbouring countries. In addition, euro-area participants can also be affected indirectly by national policy actions. The average inflation rate and the exchange rate have become common goods. Thus, a national policy action that affects these variables can in turn impact the ECB policy decision on interest rates or the ECOFIN Council’s judgement on exchange rates. Moreover, co-ordination should help countering temptation to resort to free-rider behaviour on the part of the Member States. Finally, besides economic arguments, co-ordination can also play a useful role from a political-economy viewpoint by helping to implement unpopular but necessary policy actions at national level.
