Question 1: Do you agree that exceptionally loose monetary policy by the European Central Bank is no longer appropriate?

====================================================================

Answer:
Strongly disagree
Confidence level:
Extremely confident
Comment:
While structural reforms are necessary in the long run, there is a risk that adopting reforms in the current environment can put downward pressure on prices, and thus hinder the ECB efforts towards bringing inflation to its target. In addition there is no evidence that a less accomodative monetary policy would stimulate the adoption of reforms. The argument that the ECB "masks" this problems is not correct.
