“The President of the European Central Bank (ECB), Christine Lagarde, said on Monday that the institution was closely monitoring the situation on financial markets, while France’s sovereign debt is under pressure following the calling of elections anticipated legislative elections.

“We are attentive to the proper functioning of the financial markets,” she said during a visit to the headquarters of the French start-up Pasqal in Massy, ​​Essonne.

Five ECB officials told Reuters the ECB had no plans to discuss using its emergency bond-buying program to help France.

The president also reiterated the institution’s efforts to bring inflation back to its 2% target.

“Today as President of the ECB my objective is to bring inflation down to 2%. It may seem trivial when we look at the current political issues (…) If we let this inflation go while we are in the process of controlling it and we have started this third stage of the path of monetary policy, it is totally counterproductive,” she said. »

PEPP ready?

The PEPP is the “pandemic emergency purchase program” which is part of the APP which is the “asset purchase program” (asset purchase program in good French)! Bless you !!

Well basically it’s the ECB which buys assets that the markets no longer want (like bonds from highly over-indebted states) or at a prohibitive price.

The ECB “prints” money that it does not have to buy assets, generally debt securities or assets held by banks, to avoid either the bankruptcy of banks and therefore a banking crisis, or the bankruptcy of states. and therefore a sovereign debt crisis.

Obviously the ECB is not going to start by saying like the popular front “we shave for free”… even if in the end, it will not end up shaving for free.

By shaving for free, the money is no longer worth anything.

It’s a principle as old as time…

In reality there is nothing “free”… except the promises of politicians who only engage the poor people who believe in them.
