Implications of EU Enlargement. EU enlargement: Economic implications for countries and industries explores the economic consequences of the enlargement of the European Union with countries from Central and Eastern Europe.

Most EU countries will experience small welfare increases. By A.M.Lejour, R.A.de Mooij and R.Nahuis
