ECON6008 Assignment 2

Should the Czech Republic join the Euro? You should only consider economic arguments for and against joining the Euro monetary union, and not purely political arguments. You should try to make a recommendation, whether an outright recommendation (“Yes, they should join because ... outweighs ....”, or “No they should not join, because ... outweighs ...”) or a conditional recommendation, such as “On balance, the Czech Republic should join the Euro if the following conditions are met ....” or “The Czech Republic should not join if ...”. You will be assessed on the quality of your arguments; I have no firm “right” answer in mind.
