Fabio Panetta Member of the Board of Directors of the ECB: The European Central Bank should not accept any further delays in raising inflation to its target, as the current outlook is unsatisfactory and persistent failures can damage the economy. The ECB has already exceeded its target of almost 2% for eight years and its projections indicate that it will continue to fail for years to come. The bloc struggles to absorb the depth left by a pandemic-induced recession.
With the stimulus now nearing its limits, some politicians argue that the ECB should simply accept a slower rise in price pressures rather than try to do even more, but Panetta rejected this argument, warning that the costs outweigh the benefits.
