Subsidiarity and Nationalism in the Formation of a Unified Europe
Views from Europe and Comparison with United States History

This paper examines the events surrounding the formation of a European common market based upon personal interviews and historical analysis. It raises the issue of whether the Maastricht Treaty should be approved by European parliaments or national referendums. It argues that neoclassical theory inadequately predicts and understands these events.
