A quiet strategist, John Monet worked patiently behind the scenes and influenced every effort on behalf of European integration in the post-World War world. He believed that the consolidation of European economic interests would lead to the creation of a European political federation. The European Coal and Steel Community (ECSC) was founded on this premise in 1952, and within five years, the ECSC had set up a pattern of successful cooperation. Monet's next objective, to establish a free trade area, was realized in 1962, when the Common Market became the world's greatest trading community. Monet's goal of expanding the six original members to ten was accomplished in 1971, establishing a super power bloc of 258 million people.
