Hawkish Ecb Hints At Pre-emptive Rate Rises

Recommended Posts

They have restrained so far from increasing their rate to ensure that the Euro does not rise excessively

against the dollar.

Thay should have paid more attention to real inflation (the harmonized price index is typically 1% less that RPI) and even that underestimates inflation, in my opinion.

If they do not start rising rates aggressively now, inflation expectations will take hold in wage demands and

inflation will be out of control. Rates then will have to increase much more than 3%, quoted in the article.

People's patience with negative interest rates is wearing thin and that fuels spending on assets,

like housing.
