"In recent times, we observe an increase in Covid-19 infections and some curtancing measures in parts of the euro area," said beak .

An inflation rate at this level had last determined the Wiesbaden Statisticians just 28 years ago: in October 1993. There was a higher inflation rate in August 1993 with 4.6 percent.

Against the background of such a secure economic situation, the ECB council members should try to preserve a certain range of room for maneuver at their meeting on 16 December, they added. The meeting is considered crucial for the future of the bond purchases of the ECB after the expiry of 1.85 trillion euros heavy pandemic emergency program in March.

"In times of great uncertainty, it is extremely important to preserve a degree of optionality," said beak. "I would not bind me about a long period of time. That would be a mistake. "

The net purchases under the Pandemic Program (PepP) are expected to end in March, reiterated beak. She expressed skeptically about the future role of bond purchases in the arsenal of the ECB, even if they recognized the positive impacts they had so far.

"There is on the one hand decreasing income from the purchase of assets and on the other hand increasing side effects," she said. "Therefore, there will be a shift from the purchases of assets to other instruments, especially to our Forward Guidance."

Flexibility Debate

A central dispute among the ECB council members was the question of whether the exceptional flexibility of the emergency program can be transferred to the regular instruments when the Pepp expires. Schnabel said it was essential to maintain a certain flexibility first. "Especially in this transitional phase is important," she said. "The coronavirus crisis is not a black and white thing. The exit from the pandemic will be a process. "

The ECB could, for example, transfer the flexibility to its regular purchase program, or create a new facility that would serve as hedge. Beak to understand that the Pepp could still play a role after March.

"It is important to acknowledge the crucial role of this flexibility," she said. "The Pep will not disappear if the net purchase of assets are reduced to zero. Sometimes talking about the end of the Pepp. The Pep will not leak in March. The net purchases of assets maybe, but not the Pep as such. "

on the question of whether you were interested to take over the top of the Bundesbank when President Jens Weidmann excretes in December, Schnabel said, she did not want speculation and focus on the upcoming important decision of the ECB.
