monetary union

Is monetary union left out of this series on purpose? It seems like it belongs to me, but I'm no expert. Ingrid 16:08, 3 February 2006 (UTC)

I s'pose it might be because it sort of doesn't fit into the logical progression — groups of countries have existed who had a monetary union, but little more than that in terms of integration. —Nightstallion (?) 18:34, 3 February 2006 (UTC)
I guess I'm still missing something. Isn't it also true that groups of countries have existed with a trade bloc and little else. Similarly for a customs union or free trade area? I imagine that once you get to a common market, you're pretty well integrated. It would make more sense to me for the template to look like:
Trade Series
International trade
History of international trade
Trade bloc
Free trade area
Customs union
Trade creation
Trade diversion
Monetary union
Common market
Economic and monetary union
But as I said, I'm not an expert, so didn't want to make a change without checking. Ingrid 04:47, 5 February 2006 (UTC)
