Volker Wieland warns against consequences of the ECB's monetary policy ("FAZ-Woche")

Volker Wieland has reiterated his warning regarding the consequences of the expansionary monetary policy of the European Central Bank (ECB). According to Wieland, the monetary policy is too expansionary and thus is doing more harm than good, he said in an interview with the weekly newspaper "Frankfurter Allgemeine Woche".

In Wieland's opinion, in Germany the impact of the ECB's monetary policy becomes obvious in the rapidly increasing housing prices and the negative interest rates for sovereign bonds with maturities of eight years. The ECB was staring at the index of consumer prices like the deer caught in the headlights, neglecting the impact of the its monetary policy apart from the consumer prices.
