Germany, the euro, and the European Central Bank

Germany, the euro, and the European Central Bank

(p.155) 11 Germany, the euro, and the European Central Bank
The Germany Illusion

Marcel Fratzscher

Oxford University Press

The euro is at a crossroads. Not only has it been blamed for having contributed to the European crisis and for preventing a solution, but there is a growing conflict between many in Germany and the European Central Bank (ECB), the guardian of the euro and the common monetary policy. This division and isolated views in Germany are worrisome. Why do politicians, the media, and in particular, economists differ so fundamentally in their views on the euro and monetary policy? How is it possible that in this age, in which information is abundantly available and shared globally, nationality and the environment in which people operate play such a big role? What does it mean for the future of Europe?

Keywords:   Bundesbank, dominance, economic convergence, euro, European central bank, mandate, monetary union, rules
