'The ECU' by Roger Priouret (RTL, 7 March 1979)

Audio extract
The ECU (European Currency Unit) is not a real currency. No banknotes denominated in ECU have been issued, as it is an accounting unit whose value is calculated on a daily basis. The exchange rate is calculated as an average of the currencies of the Member States of the European Economic Community (EEC).
