Autumn Statement & Charter for Budgetary Responsibility

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

ECB's quantitative easing

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

Question 2:

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

Answer:
Agree
Confidence level:
Confident
Comment:
When compared to the alternative QE with more risk sharing, I agree this makes the Eurozone more fragile. But again, if the benchmark is inaction, this QE programme is preferable.

Agree
Confidence level:

I agree the the way the ECB has designed its QE programme will reduce to some extent its effectiveness, but on the other hand, it is preferable to inaction.

Reforming the monetary system to allow negative policy interest rates will equip the BoE with an additional tool to face potential crises in the future.
