The ECB at the crossroads
From Mario Draghi to Christine Lagarde
At the end of 2019, Christine Lagarde replaced Mario Draghi, the man who was ready to do “whatever it takes” to save the euro. The ex-chair of the IMF (International Monetary Fund) has taken the reins of an ECB (European Central Bank) divided over the strategy to follow for the next decade.
Traditionally split between stringency and monetary flexibility, the Frankfurt institution must face up to new challenges. To respond to these issues, Christine Lagarde will have to redefine the framework of the monetary policy (inflation target), while the banking and budget union has not yet been achieved.
The Primonial REIM Research team has analysed the situation in the Minute Eco.
