Description: 

The Spanish economy has undertaken a profound process of modernization during the last decades, and its gradual integration in the EU has been one of the main driving forces of that process. This course is aimed at analyzing the main recent developments of the Spanish economy, its process of growth and convergence with the core European economies and the main structural problems that the Spanish economy has still to face in the future. Special reference will be made to the current crisis, the consequences of the European Monetary Union for the peripheral European countries and the debate about the economic policy options to overcome the crisis.
