De Gaulle's views on EMU are compared with those of his Finance Minister Giscard d’Estaing. French policy towards the Hague Summit and the Werner Report is analysed, in particular the views and strategy of Pompidou. The Giscard Presidency is explored from the problems of the ‘Snake’ to the idea of a ‘new Bretton Woods for Europe’, beginning with the ERM and leading to EMU by a process of evolution.

Keywords:   EMU, ERM, Valéry Giscard d’Estaing, France, Charles De Gaulle, Hague Summit, Georges Pompidou, Snake, Werner Report, Bretton Woods
