Unit 4 Macro: Data Charts on the Euro Economy


I am teaching aspects of the European single currency this week, naturally there are many charts that tell important stories about the macro challenges facing countries inside the euro area. I have made a file of charts available for download and I hope this might be of help to teachers covering the Euro for Unit 4 macro. See the link below:
