Abstract

L'adoption de l'euro presente plusieurs avantages, dont des couts de transaction plus faibles, la disparition du risque de change par rapport a l'euro et une plus grande transparence des prix. Toutefois, le premier argument est contredit par le cout eleve du changement, le deuxieme a des effets positifs limites du fait de la part elevee, pour le Royaume-Uni, des echanges en dollars par rapport auquel l'euro est tres instable ; enfin, le troisieme n'est pas vraiment pertinent car l'insularite limite beaucoup les possibilites d'arbitrage sur les prix. Les inconvenients sont de trois ordres : une plus grande instabilite macroeconomique due a la perte d'independance monetaire (des simulations stochastiques montrent que l'indicateur d'instabilite pourrait augmenter de 75%) ; les mesures d'harmonisation a prendre pour renforcer la symetrie ; et les inquietudes quant aux mesures qui seront prises pour renflouer les systemes publics de retraite.
