Discussie bij ECB over afbouw stimuli

Monetair beleid

Bij de ECB is discussie tussen duiven zoals de Belg Peter Praet en haviken zoals de voorzitter van de Nederlandsche Bank Klaas Knot, over de afbouw van de monetaire interventies. Dat schrijft Bloomberg.

The remarks reflect the dissonance since the start of the year in the Governing Council over when officials should discuss winding down their 2.3 billion-euro ($2.6 billion) asset-purchase program. Praet has consistently called for patience, while colleagues such as Knot and Germany’s Jens Weidmann have warned against leaving it too late, and Executive Board member Benoit Coeure has said a failure to be transparent can increase market volatility.
