How much do countries benefit from membership in the European Union?

Nauro F Campos, Fabrizio Coricelli, Luigi Moretti 09 April 2014

The process of economic integration in Europe is more than half a century old. WWII provided impetus and, even if from the outset it was driven much by politics, considerations about economic benefits have always been paramount (Martin et al. 2012.) Integration has since deepened and broadened, with slowdowns but without major reversals.

In the wake of the Great Recession and of the Eurozone crisis, the intense debate about the economic benefits from EU membership is hardly a surprise. What is surprising is how far the economic research lags on the issue.

The eye, the needle and the camel: Rich countries can benefit from EU membership

EU members are all alike; every EU candidate is a candidate in its own way. This is, of course, our attempt at rephrasing Anna Karenina’s opener (“Happy families are all alike; every unhappy family is unhappy in its own way”). Tolstoy had marriage in mind while Diamond (1997) had domesticated animals. For pets and marriages, success happens not because of one particular, positive, exceptional feature, but because of the lack of key negative traits.

Despite the scientific emphasis on the economic needs for skilled workers by native firms, lay concerns remain about whether immigrants may depress wages, cause unemployment, exploit social security systems and generate social tensions. In general, the economic impact of immigration on receiving labour markets depends on the scale of the immigration flows, the composition of the migrating population and the functioning of the receiving economy.

Enough is enough: How many people should decide about monetary policy?

A few weeks ago, the European Commission recommended that Slovakia should be allowed to join the eurozone as of January 1, 2009. When the member states follow this recommendation and accept Slovakia’s adoption of the euro, the country will become the sixteenth member of the European single currency zone.

Is enlargement unlimited?

If imitation is the highest form of flattery, the founders of the European Union should be thrilled. Ever since “The Six” formed their club in 1958, European countries have been knocking on the door. Britain, Ireland, Denmark and Norway asked to join in 1961. They were twice rebuffed by Charles de Gaulle’s famous ‘non’, but starting in 1973 the club has admitted new members regularly – six enlargements in 34 years – three in the past decade and a half.
