    [From the Introduction]. Greece joined the European Community in 1981 and Spain and Portugal in 1986. Given the relative size and level of development of the three economies it was expected that EC accession would have profound effects on the economies of the three Mediterranean countries. Several studies in the fields of political economy and economics have conducted comparative analyses on similarities and differences of the three aforementioned countries (Seers and Vaitsos, 1981; Seers, Schaffer and Kiljunen, 1979; Tsoukalis, 1981; Sampedro and Payno, 1983; Katseli, 1983 etc.). It is generally accepted that, as far as economics is concerned, EC membership opened, for the three Southern European countries, a significant source of direct and portfolio investment, lending and budgetary transfers (via the Agricultural, Social and Regional Funds) that allowed the adjustment of the balance of payments of Spain, Greece and Portugal via surpluses in their capital accounts.
