Covid-19 and the European economy: View from euro area’s periphery
With the expansion of the European Central Bank‘s pandemic emergency purchase programme to €1.35tn and following the European Commission’s proposals for a recovery plan, there are questions as to what shape Europe’s coronavirus exit strategy should take. John (Iannis) Mourmouras, deputy governor of the Bank of Greece, provides a view from a previously troubled euro area member. He discusses monetary and fiscal responses to Covid-19, as well as risks of inflation and a new debt crisis.
