Should the UK adopt the euro? One of the key questions currently facing the country. The answer has implications for the UK, Europe and the world economy. Without using economic jargon, Paul Temperton clearly explains for the general reader the case for and against the UK adopting the euro and what the likely affects of each course of action will be. With the help of cartoons and a clear style that make complex economic ideas understandable, The UK and the Euro details all of the key issues in the controversy, while offering a clear and impartial look at both sides.
