A book co-authored by professors based at Princeton University and SciencesPo has been named to the Financial Times’ Best Books of 2016: Economics list.

The Euro and the Battle of Ideas,” published by Princeton University Press, examines the Eurozone, arguing that the core problem with the euro lies within the philosophical differences between Germany and France — the founding countries of the Eurozone.

The book was written by Markus Brunnermeier, Edwards S. Sanford Professor of Economics at Princeton; Harold James, the Claude and Lore Kelly Professor in European Studies and professor of history and international affairs at Princeton University and the Woodrow Wilson School of Public and International Affairs; and Jean-Pierre Landau, professor of economics at SciencesPo.

The Financial Times’ Best Books of 2016 list is a round-up of “must-read titles” from the past year.
