Une Europe politique par le marché et par la monnaie

Abstract : [A political Europe via the currency and the market] The two major projects undertaken in the building of Europe since the nineteen-eighties (the single market and the single currency) would appear to be exclusively economic, drawing sustenance from a fundamental event of that period: the reappearance of the market as organizing principle of the economy. Hence the widespread feeling of a political deficit, or a "soulless" Europe. In fact, to meet a broad range of demands, promoters of Europe have deployed a wide variety of market rationales (the market as substantive reality, as normative ideal, as forum for development and as political horizon), of which only the first is practically purely "economic". European construction is decidedly a political process, and in this sense a "political Europe" already exists. However, the overall consistency of the process can only be seen in retrospect, and the lessons that can be drawn from it for the future are in no way immediately obvious.
