The Future of Central Bank Independence

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

Question 3: More generally, do you agree that it is desirable to maintain central bank independence? Again focus on the near future, say next 48 months.

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

Answer:
Strongly agree
Confidence level:
Very confident
Comment:
It is vital and desirable to maintain central bank independence in the coming years, as attacks to central banks from populists will continue. During the eurozone crisis, the ECB has emerged as perhaps the strongest anchor of stability in Europe. And quite often, the EU Council, mostly the Euro-group, have hided behind ECB actions. To maintain much-needed central bank independence in the euroarea, the Eurogroup and the Council have to take responsibility for their actions.
