It is a quite common vision in contemporary economic theory. Of course, the validity of such a conception is highly problematic for the euro, which was decided after German reuniﬁcation: the French government wanted to tie Germany ﬁrmly to Western Europe and proposed to launch EMU, whereas the German government was eager to develop a political integration of Europe, possibly along federal principles (Story, Chapter 3).

Integrating Polity and Economy For conventional theory, economic policy is assumed to be the consequence of a rational calculus operating on purely economic variables: the evolution of consumption, a measure of welfare and the rate of interest. Basically, there is no autonomy whatsoever between polity and economy, the former being the direct expression of the latter. In a sense, the old Marxian theory had the same simpliﬁcation, when it stressed that the state was operating to the beneﬁt of the capitalist class, and not for the well-being of the society as a whole.
Although the DM was repeatedly revalued upwards during the period of that regime until its collapse in the early 1970s, the revaluations were always running behind the DM's continuously rising PPP value. 6 Soon afterwards began the various experiments with snakes and exchange rate mechanisms within Western Europe designed to contain movements and prevent the DM rising too rapidly in relation to the currencies of its main trading partners. The central lesson to emerge from this is that the institutions of German society had their opportunity to learn how to cope with a highly autonomous central bank during an unusual period of a currency that was strong while being undervalued.
