This is consistent with the view that the path followed by policymakers as they prepared to launch the euro was credible enough to lock in expectations about exchange rates before the euro’s formal adoption in The macroeconomic debate about EMU has always focused on the costs and the benefits of suppressing exchange rates between the participating countries. These costs and benefits actually depend on whether the exchange rate is a useful adjustment instrument or an additional source of instability.
