In this article, the writer notes that the European Union was created initially in 1993 as a means of uniting countries of Europe into a single market. Since then the EU has grown substantially, now encompassing 25 different European countries. The writer points out that despite the massive growth of the common market, there remain some countries which, to this date, have elected not to participate. The reason for this is that they feel that it would not be beneficial for them to do so at the present time. The writer evaluates the benefits which the common market does in fact hold for different types of countries, both rich and poor. The writer argues that there are greater benefits to joining the common market for poor countries than for rich companies, due to the way in which the common market acts to reduce the poverty gap between countries.

Defining the Benefits
Working in Different Countries
Consumer Goods
