 Salzburg's economy in the European Union
For the province of Salzburg, however, the European Union was not simply a project to prepare its own agriculture for international markets.
Salzburg managed to channel close to 7.4 million Euro research funds from the European Union into the local economy, more than 14 Euro per capita, and this in spite of the fact that there is no technological university in Salzburg.
In the meantime many technological projects of the European Union are firmly based in Salzburg.

 Small Is Big - European Monetary Union International Economy, The - Find Articles
One widely expected result of European Monetary Union was the diminution of the power and influence of the German central bank--the Bundesbank--in European, indeed, in world monetary affairs.
With the establishment of the European Central Bank, however, the Bundesbank became one, though one with a very special past, of the many national central banks participating in European Monetary Union.
When I asked a senior European central banker to name the most influential members of the Governing Council, Nout Wellink, president of the Nederlandsche Bank, came close to the top of the list.

 Italy's Economy and the European Union
Similarly heretical—though less dangerous—is the notion that there is movement in the Italian economy, indeed, that in many respects it has achieved considerable success.
After engaging in a painful effort during the early and mid-1990s, Italy confounded the skeptics by meeting the criteria enabling it to join the European Union's single currency area at its inception in 1999.
Since then, however, Italy has slipped to the back of the pack, moving from low GDP growth into recession and showing seemingly little progress in addressing, let alone resolving, a number of fundamental economic problems.
