This volume documents the economic integration of the European national economies over the period 1850-1913. The authors concentrate on the macroeconomic aspects of this integration, focusing on measures of aggregate output and monetary aggregates as they relate to policy concerns, such as those surrounding the implementation of the gold standard, as well as the possible interaction of nominal and real factors in both growth and cycles. They also date the `European' cycle and show a close coincidence across nations.
