Volker Wieland on the debate about the publication of the ECB minutes ("Handelsblatt")

The European Central Bank is nearing a decision on whether to publish the minutes of its monetary policy meetings.

"How To Become More Transparent?", the German "Handelsblatt" writes about the debate. Volker Wieland is in favor of the ECB's move towards more transparency. "This is a way to counter the allegations that many decisions are made based on national interests," he said.
