Weighing the Costs and Benefits of Monetary Unions

Regional Monetary Integration, by Council Adjunct Senior Fellow for International Economics Peter B. Kenen and American University professor of economics Ellen E. Meade, poses an important question: Should various country groups in North and South America and in East Asia form full-fledged monetary unions similar to the European Monetary Union? The authors explore the effect that action might have on the role of the International Monetary Fund (IMF) and the dollar.

Toronto-Montreal Rivalry Lives On - in Hockey Rinks, Football Fields and Financial Markets

Anyone lucky enough to get a ticket for a hockey game between the Toronto Maple Leafs and the Montreal Canadians has sensed the unique combination of electricity and emotion in the air, reflecting the old rivalry between the two cities. The football games between the Toronto Argonauts and the Montreal Alouettes don't generate the same excitement, but that may be because Toronto has not produced a contender on the football field in the last few years.
