Abstract: This thesis seeks to explore whether potential clusters of economies better suited for monetary integration exist in East Asia. To do so, this thesis examines the degree of confluence among East Asian countries in terms of economic characteristics and policies as well as the nature of underlying shocks, as these are major economic factors for monetary union. It is found that the economic and political preconditions for regional monetary integration are currently lacking. Given the regiona??s diversity, a practical approach towards East Asian monetary integration is to begin with smaller clusters of economies first, and the enlargement of these clusters, when a sufficient degree of convergence and harmonization is attained. This thesis also infers from the recent experience of European monetary integration in drawing policy implications for monetary integration in East Asia. Finally, the thesis provides interesting and alternative perspectives to the issue of monetary integration.
