Attitudes towards the Euro: An Empirical Study Based on the German Socio-Economic Panel (SOEP)
Isengard, Bettina; Schneider, Thorsten
Social Indicators Research, v82 n1 p35-56 May 2007
This paper investigates changing attitudes towards the euro over time in Germany using longitudinal micro-data from the German Socio Economic Panel Study. We observe that a large part of the German population was worried about the new currency both before and after its introduction. Social psychological theories provide insight into these attitudes. Concerns regarding the euro are apparently connected with problems in handling the new currency and with the press coverage of price rises. For these reasons, future EMU member states should prepare their populations better for these challenges.
