Blake, D. ORCID: 0000-0002-2453-2090 (2021). Striking Similarities: The Origins of the European Economic Community. Advances in Politics and Economics, 4(1), pp. 1-19. doi: 10.22158/ape.v4n1p1


A Plan for a European Economic Community was developed at the University of Berlin in 1942. There are striking similarities with the European Economic Community that was introduced in 1957—and which became the foundation stone of the European Union. Particularly striking is the innate hostility both to liberal economic values and to democracy—a hostility that permeates the EU to this very day.
