  • Extract:

    Mario Draghi has found good allies in his effort to push Eurozone governments to do their homework: G20 leaders, that is to say the heads of the four major countries' governments, plus the European Commission President. With the critiques about negative rates, the consequences of a liquidity injection, and the so-called ineffectiveness of monetary policy to meet its goals, Mario Draghi will probably run out of patience in regard governments' (in)action.
    Today, the deal is clear, either governments improve the economic conditions in the Eurozone, or they will face a prolonged period of negative short term rates and a liquidity injection; the ECB will do its job, whatever it takes.
