A timely and provocative account of why the euro has failed and why, as a result, the Union will unravel

Examining key economic indicators and assessing the situation across Europe, two British journalists assess why the euro has failed—and what will happen when the European Union completely unravels.
 
“This book is a must-read for anyone who cares about the future of Europe and progressive politics. Larry Elliott and Dan Atkinson correctly predicted the euro would prove a calamity. They are right today that the euro crisis is far from over. Their demand for a radical change of approach must be taken seriously—by policy makers and politicians alike.”—Ed Balls, UK Shadow Chancellor from 2011 to 2015
 
“[The book] offers useful insight into why so many people thought the euro was a good idea in the first place.”—Harvard Business Review

Larry Elliott is economics editor at the Guardian.Dan Atkinson is financial editor at Sticky Content. Both authors live in the UK.

"As the debate over the future of Europe rages, this is a brilliantly compelling book that exposes the terrible failure of the euro project."—Owen Jones

They are right today that the euro crisis is far from over. Their demand for a radical change of approach must be taken seriously – by policy makers and politicians alike."—Ed Balls, UK Shadow Chancellor from 2011-2015

"Elliott and Atkinson have done it again. This is a brilliantly written and powerfully argued attack on the Euro project. They can justly claim to have been members of “the Few” who foresaw the disaster that the Euro would turn out to be. Now they are part of the even smaller number who recognize that the euro needs to break up."—Roger Bootle, chairman of Capital Economics and author of The Trouble with Europe

"This important, readable book encapsulates why the euro was created and has failed so miserably. Elliott and Atkinson have been among the few who have foreseen and reported on the problems along the way, and here the reader is given insights from the centre of European policy-making and the heart of British politics. We are told they have been planning to write this book for thirty years. It has been well worth the wait."—Dr. Gerard Lyons, Chief Economic Advisor to Boris Johnson
 

"All sides in the European debate call for various forms of 'reform'.
Whatever one’s standpoint, this new work by the tried and tested team
of Larry Elliott and Dan Atkinson is essential reading on the problems
afflicting the European Union, and possible solutions."—William Keegan, Senior Economics Commentator, Observer
