The European Central Bank is an independent and supranational institution with the primary task of defining and managing monetary policy for the euro-area, ensuring price stability. More recently a new responsibility has been given to the European Central Bank: supervision on banks in the euro-area. In the aftermath of the most acute financial and economic crisis of the last sixty years, it is crucial to have in depth knowledge of this institution, to assess its action and engagement. The book tells its history and illustrates its functions, structure and responsibilities and the exceptional answers to respond to the "perfect storm" of the crisis.
