This chapter attempts an ex-ante estimation of the economic effects from Greece’s accession to the European Economic Community (EEC). Using available pre-accession statistical data and the information relative to the modalities of the Treaty of Accession signed in May 1979 we forecast how income, expenditure and employment would develop under the impact of the integration process and compare the results with a plausible reference run of the Greek economy under the no-accession hypothesis. For this forecasting exercise we used a demand-type econometric model called GRACINT. The principal findings of this econometric exercise are summarised in Table 2.1 towards the end of the chapter.
