Even if prices remain high, Volker Wieland expects the inflation rate to fall again in the next few years. However, this also depends on the further development of energy prices, he said in an interview with "Rotary Magazine".
In the energy crisis, he is pragmatic. "Of course we want to become climate-neutral, of course we want to get out of nuclear energy, but we do have to think now about how we can get through the next few winters in an economically compatible and socially acceptable way if we end our dependence on Russia. That's a huge task for which we have to use all levers."
