 Single market - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
A single market is a customs union with common policies on product regulation, and freedom of movement of all the four factors of production (goods, services, capital and labour).
The EC formally became a single market in 1992 when the Maastricht treaty was signed.
It was not until the Single European Act (1986) that the final barriers to free movement of capital, labour, goods and services were removed.

Furthermore, it is notable that the positive numbers exhibited in 2004 were buoyed by a strengthening high-end market, with the market segments of resort-orientated lots and condominium / townhomes showing a marked growth.
The market for condominiums and townhomes in Jackson Hole grew aggressively during 2004, showing a 21.82% increase in the number of sales during 2004 and a total dollar volume of sales that increased by 29.21% from 2003.
The contribution to this market growth from the resort-orientated market segment was interpreted as a strong positive factor considering this market segment had been somewhat flat in the years subsequent to the "dotcom" contraction and the attacks of September 11, 2001.

 Free Movement - Establishing the CARICOM Single Market and Economy (CSME)
The decision in 1989 to establish the CARICOM Single Market and Economy (CSME) was a move to deepen the integration movement and to better respond to the challenges and opportunities presented by globalisation.
While a primary focus of the Common Market was on liberalising trade in goods among the Members, the Single Market and Economy not only expands this process to include services, but also provides for the free movement of capital (money), skilled labour, and the freedom to establish business enterprises anywhere in the Community.
Therefore, to complete the Single Market, the immediate focus of attention will be on the removal of restrictions on the right of establishment, the movement of services, capital and skilled labour.

The single market is certainly up and running, but it is still very much a ‘work in progress’ with constant room for improvement.
The coming of the euro has been good for market transparency and competition: since 1 January 2002, consumers with euros in their pockets have been able to shop around, directly comparing prices in a dozen different EU countries.
So the EU institutions are drawing up legislation to ensure there is no conflict between the Treaty rules on competition within the single market and the need to maintain services of general interest at a high level of provision.

 Pension Annuity UK | open market option annuities
An open market option means an annuitant is free to buy a compulsory purchase annuity (or pension annuity) from any provider in the market, and this applies to a With Profits annuity as well as a standard annuity.
Both annuity types can be purchased as a single life annuity where the annuitant does not have a partner and this feature can also apply to a With Profits annuity.
This means that the pension income from a single life annuity will be greater than a joint life annuity because due to mortality, it is going to be paid out for a shorter period of time.

 FT.com / Europe - Europe nears single energy market
Behind the initiative is a concern that the inefficient use of capacity on cross­border electricity links limits the smooth transfer of power between countries and leads to uncertainty about the supply of energy within the EU.
The plans to set up Europe’s first regional integrated power market have been in train for several years and are seen as the first stage in establishing a common European market in energy.
So far attempts to encourage a single market have been held back by a lack of interconnector capacity and the protectionist approach by individual countries on energy policy.
