“The price increase does not reflect excess demand in the euro area.”

“Action against fragmentation is necessary for us to fulfill that mandate.”

“Inflation expectations are around 2% and salary increases remain moderate.”

“In vulnerable countries, fragmentation would lead to capital outflows and higher yields, leading to overly tight financing conditions.”

“The less vulnerable countries would experience capital inflows that would compress yields.”

“Therefore, measures to avoid fragmentation are not at odds with standardization.”

“Beyond ending negative rates, further tightening of our monetary policy will depend on how the outlook evolves.”
