Since its foundation in 1998 the European Central Bank has maneuvered through a complex international and domestic economic maze, punctuated by unpredictable structural change and crisis. How has European monetary policy developed in those years and what lessons does it’s history hold for the future?

This event will feature the presentation of “Monetary Policy in Times of Crisis – A Tale of Two Decades of the European Central Bank.” The book is both a chronicle of the evolution of the ECB’s thinking and internal practices over the years and an econometric study of its struggle to anchor inflation in a two-regime world, where inflation tends to be either too high or too low.

Monetary arithmetic and inflation risk

Between 2007 and 2020, the balance sheets of the European Central Bank, the Bank of Japan, and the Fed have all increased about sevenfold. But inflation stayed low throughout the 2010s. This was possible due to decreasing money velocity and the money multiplier. However, a continuation of asset purchasing programs by central banks involves the risk of higher inflation and fiscal dominance.

How have the European Central Bank’s negative rates been passed on?

Negative rate cuts are not that different from ‘standard’ rate cuts. Like them, they reduce banks’ margins, but this effect does not appear to be amplified below 0%.

Inflation!? Germany, the euro area and the European Central Bank

There is concern in Germany about rising prices, but expectations and wage data show no sign of excess pressures; German inflation should exceed 2% to support euro-area rebalancing but is unlikely to do so on sustained basis.
