    Single currency in Europe and banknotes circulation : scenarios and proposals

  • Abstract

    What are the best conditions for the use of a single currency in europe from the point of view of citizens? a currency is a symbol that means a sovereignty principle. Transition towards a single currency will involve five main problems : designation and possible banknotes differenciation, conversion rates, time limits ant temporary double circulation. The analysis of chief contemporary monetary reforms, new franc (1960), sterling decimalization (1971) and the german monetary unification (1990) prooves that the scenario that has been chosen in madrid (1995) is the best. Nevertheless it is likely that more convenient conversion rates and some differenciation in banknotes presentation is desirable.

  • Abstract

    Quelles sont les meilleurs conditions de passage a la monnaie unique du point de vue de l'utilisation de la monnaie fiduciaire par le public? la monnaie est un symbole qui exprime un principe de souverainete. La transition vers la monnaie unique entrainera cinq problemes principaux : denomination et differenciation des signes monetaires, taux de conversion, delais et double circulation temporaire. L'analyse des grandes reformes monetaires contemporaines, nouveau franc (1960). Decimalisation de la livre sterling (1971) et unification monetaire allemande (1990) montrent que le scenario choisi a madrid en 1995 est le meilleur. Toutefois une certaine differenciation des signes monetaires ainsi que des taux de conversion arrondis semblent souhaitables.
