Growth Single market The White Paper Completing the Internal Market (European Commission 1985) started the Single Market process with the explicit aim of completing it by the end of 1992. On 1 January 1993, border controls for goods were indeed eliminated as foreseen in the 1985 White Paper. The Single Market for goods has been largely achieved. Frictions still arise as a result of the diversity of national technical regulations, despite the principle of mutual recognition. A cornerstone of the Single Market Programme, this posits that Member States are requested to recognise regulations drawn by other EU countries as being equivalent to their own, allowing economic activities that are lawful in one Member State to be freely pursued throughout the Community.

If markets imperfectly address the relevant issues, relying on automatic competition among equally imperfect policy-making systems, they are unlikely to foster better outcomes than a wellinformed, coherent policy-making framework. The EU system of economic policies addresses coordination and coherence problems on the basis of the subsidiarity principle. Policy decisions and implementation should respect the principle of ‘economic subsidiarity’, and be delegated to the lowest level of government able to balance benefits and costs of the relevant policy.

2. Macroeconomic stability In the days before the Single Market, Member States had developed only limited forms of monetary coordination. However, the growing trade between them, the need for capital mobility, and the coexistence of asymmetric monetary policies revived the debate on monetary union in the late 1980s, which eventually led to the creation of the Economic and Monetary Union (EMU). (De Grauwe 2003a; Eijffinger and de Haan 2000; Corsetti and Pesenti 1999). Monetary policy In the mid-1980s, when the Single Market Programme was launched, most European currencies were part of the Exchange Rate Mechanism (ERM) of the European Monetary System (EMS).
