The euro crisis returns

The euro crisis returns | money money money | Scoop.it

Earlier this month, the European Central Bank (ECB) announced symbolic cuts to the already-low interest rates that prevailed in the euro zone. The rates are indistinguishable from zero per cent.

The purely monetary approach to the global economic problems continues. The belief in the omnipotence of monetary policy is breathtaking. That the policy is unprecedented, unusually prolonged and globally pervasive and hence has uncertain and unpredictable consequences does not seem to bother either investors or policymakers.
