Tony Darby, Head of Economics & Business Studies at Rugby School, reviews the advantages and disadvantages for those countries who have replaced their national currencies with the euro.

Summary of Key Points:

  • The eurozone is an economic and monetary union of 16 European Union member states who have decided to adopt the euro as their domestic currency.
  • The main reasons why a country may wish to use the euro as its domestic currency are that it should lower transaction costs for firms using the same currency, and it should facilitate cross-border trade and therefore lead to an increase in economic growth.
  • The key reason why a country may avoid joining the euro is that it will lose some economic sovereignty. The European Central Bank (ECB) meets monthly to decide the common interest rate across the eurozone. This ‘one size fits all’ policy may not suit all countries within the eurozone.
