 "The European Economic Community", paper by Tyler Jones
Finally, the EEC desired (and still does, as it has yet to be a practical application in Europe) for a single EEC currency, to be valid and used in all member nations.
And while the European Community had previously been viewed as a possible giant in the world market, this view is changing, gradually lessening the probable degree of importance of the EEC in the future.
Still, non-member European nations are interested in what the EEC has begun, and slowly the EEC's membership will continue to grow (with Austria likely to be the next member), despite the reports that there is no advantage to joining.

 European Union   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-11-07)
An economic union, as distinct from a common market, combines the suppression of restrictions on commodity and factor movements with some degree of harmonisation of national economic policies, in order to remove discrimination that was due to disparities in these policies.
The theory of economic integration can be regarded as a part of international economics, but it also enlarges the field of international trade theory by exploring the impact of a fusion of national market on growth and examining the need for the coordination of economic policies in a union.
Of course, the European Community is not just a new power-bloc or a new coalition, although it has its pride, it is not a swollen version of 19th century nationalism, taking a continent rather than a country as its basis.
