The ECBs Former Vice-President Explains The Historic Step That Europe Just Took

"True CEOS thinking we don't really talk that much about Europe these days. I mean, I guess not in relation to the the heady days of the eurozone debt crisis. Now we don't, but also I feel like this particular crisis at least some of our episodes, you know, obviously, we talk a lot in the bed context the US context, of course, know talked about Hong Kong and Asia and Asia supply chains in China and so forth stills like we've focused a little bit less on how this current crisis is playing out in the Europe. Yeah I think that's right I. Guess the implication is that maybe this has been unfair in some respects because there has actually been something very interesting going on in Europe at the moment. Yeah. I mean, for one thing you know there's a good argument to be made Europe at least relative to the US, if not necessarily Asian countries has done a pretty decent job overall of suppressing the virus self and you know for years during the euro area crisis, they're always people fiscal policy. Fiscal Policy Missing. You gotta spend more gotTa get the Germans to spend more and you know maybe this time it looks like they're actually doing. Yeah that's exactly what I was thinking. So we have the announcement of a big deal seven, hundred, fifty, billion euros worth by the EU to fund on long term recovery. Fund for the Eurozone and that's a big deal because as you point out, everyone's been talking about fiscal stimulus but it looks like the euro-zone is finally going ahead and doing it. Right and so this of course raises questions and it's a theme that we've definitely had a lot on on our podcast, which is, is this offer something bigger for the post-crisis period? So sports, it's well known that know there's a lot of money being spent by governments all around the world including the US. But the question mark is okay when the crisis phase is over the government's just retrench or does this become a sort of new macroeconomic stabilization model? That's a theme that we've had dozens of times but it's particularly important to New York, in context I think because people have sort of identified the lack of fiscal burden sharing his sort of a basic architectural tension or flaw within. Euros. Yeah I think that's exactly right. How does the I don't want to say the intrusion of fiscal stimulus but how does the arrival of fiscal stimulus on the scene actually reshape the way that monetary policy works and I? Guess we should also mention that the is also in the midst of a of another really important project which is rethinking. How it targets inflation. So we have all of this going on simultaneously real existential questions for the role of the European Central Bank. Absolutely well, I'm very excited. We have a fantastic guest to talk about all of this we are going to be talking with Vito comes don. So he is the former vice president of the European Central Bank from two thousand, Ten may twenty eighteen. He's now a professor at Navarra University in Madrid out the perfect guest to discuss all this. So without further ado, let's bring him in a veto. Thank you very much for joining us. So are you happy to not being a policymaker in this time or you? Do Miss being at the ECB during such an extraordinary moment. Well, it's always difficult to get out of you know executive responsibilities and I. Of course, I would not say that I, am Epi at the out or unfortunate circumstances of the covy. The shock we are again in a very important periods of policy making but. Me Europe as been doing well I think in these episodes. Better than in the previous episode of two, thousand. Ten to two thousand twelve. Just to start out with walking the significance of the deal that was agreed, this seven, hundred, hundred, billion euros you tweeted about it clearly, you think it's important. What's the significance. Well it establishes for president that are very meaningful. In, the first place it involves a decision to issue common European depth. The Commission will issue seven hundred and fifty billion of debt to fund these program, and that's the first. The second the point is that these is going to be distributed in the form of budget transfers and not loans to the country's. Third IT'S A big program to implement Wat- is a European fiscal policy stimulus to address a recessionary phase. India to be an economy, and that's also the first time that these happens at this level and fourth the distribution of the ballot transfers which. Correspond to a little more than half of the seven hundred and fifty billion is done in a way that it is not proportional to the size of each country. By two indeed benefits more the countries that's have lower level of leaving and higher unemployment. So there is a convergence play. There is solidarity aspect of these edits also quite new in terms of transfers to give you two examples on a proportional basis, Italy would be entitled to fifty billion, but the they are getting eighty billion. Right as Germany, you'll be entitled to ninety six billion in proportional terms, but is getting only twenty seven. So these four points put together constitute the indeed very important precedents and babs, and do we all hope so that it will be a sign of things to happen. If again, there will be a stressful situation in the European economy, and that's a very important element for everyone the notion that when there is a very stressful social economic situation Europe, steps up and two x decisions to fight the recession and does not leave behind any of the member countries. It's a big message for the future and I think markets are really beginning to injury injuries what these means And we see that already but it will take time of course, perhaps for the markets by Geico anglo-saxon markets to overcome. Lingering, doubts about the European project.

ECB set to expand bond-buying to soak up debt

"Let's get an update now on some of the day's business stories with you in pots from Bloomberg you and welcome back to monocle twenty four the European Central. Bank is expected to take more action tomorrow, and they'll be new coronavirus virus measures from Christine Lagarde. And hopes of a swift recovery will be downplayed. Yes, of course, the issue be one of the world's central banks, which took very rapid action back in March to counter some of the terrible economic effects. We're seeing from the current arsenal around from the measures taken to counter the current of ours. They announced the pandemic emergency purchase, program or pet. Back in March which involved seven hundred and fifty billion euros of the bond buying? The idea that the central bank step into by that and keeping rates low, the government's the companies and also for Boris with mortgages, etc, that going until at least June twenty twenty one but the expectation. In the market is, the will be more announced tomorrow. Columnists seem pretty certain. ATP will wait in with more stimulus smart at its current pace, it could wait until it's July or September meeting before judging the programs big enough to soak up over debt, being issued by governments defy the recession, and of course there is a lot of depth baby shoot. At the moment since last meeting, we've heard from the European Union moving closer towards a Common Fiscal Response the commission saying he wanted to spend seven hundred fifty billion euros with its Recovery Fund, but as to the tomorrow reckon we'll get at least another two hundred fifty billion dollars of stimulus taking the program to at least not one trillion euros at so tell us a little bit more about economic picture around Europe given the fact that this huge amount of stimulus is needed unlikely. Yes I told him this morning. We're going to get the pay date. So the coaching index is the most timely economic survey we have. We get the figures the May This morning. I'm about nine o'clock, and we're expecting that number to jump to thirty point five. Not just explain what that means. Fifty is the guy is the between expansion and contraction iron, fifty expansion, obviously no economies and you're spending at a moment in April that was thirteen point six. The lowest reading with ever seen toback think in May will jump to about thirty, so that's a lot better than April's reading but he's still pretty terrible. It's actually puts us back in line. Awfully what we saw in March when economies shrank pretty badly around European Union still. About the shape of the recovery. In the beginning or passing my have a v-shaped recovery with the economy bouncing back very quickly. Not many people think that any more more likely will get You even less missing. l-shaped recovery or Nike swoosh or some other recovery which is uncertain and quite wobbly over the rest.

Interest rates are extremely low. There is lots of loans being made available for for governments. They are territories in the north. East we can still do something. Warmness is to to calm.

"ecb" Discussed on Bloomberg Radio New York

"I guess my question for you is is this massive bond buying program that the ECB announced what markets were looking for well it's certainly part of what markets are looking for but I don't think markets fully know what they are looking for I think they want to see that the central banks have a willingness to give them unlimited tools and that of course means that central banks need to be exploring and considering even more experimental non a Terry policy tools so yes bond buying is very very important but I think markets would release respond positively to the notion that central banks may be considering things like helicopter money that really can impact individual households in the midst of a crisis would not be something that would come on the fiscal side I'm actually Hey it could come either way it could come from central banks keep in mind that that is the idea behind a helicopter money is quite amorphous it was just an idea that was thrown out a few decades ago so it's really not that dissimilar to QB I keep in mind large scale asset purchases which is an academic theory back in the nineteen sixties utilized by one central bank in the early two thousands in a very small way and of course and then became the the weapon does your during the global financial crisis so it's funny how things can evolve and especially that which doesn't have a lot of structure or rules around it can be interpreted in different ways I think this is the time to be exploring extraordinary monetary policy tools are you seeing any hints given the extraordinary moves we've already seen from central banks that they might be thinking that way are is are there potential risks to such an extraordinary mo well there are risks to any kind of experimental monetary policy let's take a negative interest rates certainly when central banks said began utilizing negative interest rates as a tool they didn't know what the unintended consequences would be you only find that out as you use it but at the same time you will still find out the efficacy of a tool unless you use it and course we learned that Q. E. was effective at least in terms of impacting asset prices in terms of negative rates of course Europe in particular is found itself in a trap of negative interest rates that it's had trouble getting out of even before this current crisis took place is that kind of what could be potentially holding central banks back from considering something like helicopter money or something even more extraordinary oh absolutely and of course the bankers tend to be traditionalists however I do hold out hope for the ECB given that Christine Lagarde is a nontraditional leader of the central bank thank I do believe that desperate times call for at least considering desperate measures what's interesting about helicopter money is if it came from a central bank it would likely be in response to the fact that governments haven't provided enough fiscal stimulus I think that's the crux of the lot of the lack of confidence in markets hi is this ex expectation at least in the U. S. that the government will not provide enough fiscal stimulus I think that's a common problem certainly we've heard dental Max bankers bemoan that for years course the a number that's being bandied about now in the U. S. is another one point three trillion dollar stimulus measure you thinking that's not enough for this idea that perhaps the U. S. could take equity positions in companies again that that might not be enough either well certainly a combination of things might be enough but each of those measures on their own would fall short in terms of I think what markets are looking for they don't want one does is that they want multiple doses as your last minute here China reported no new infections at least today does that give you a sense of where recovery on this side of the world could come oh absolutely what I have been saying since this crisis has begun is that this is not like the global financial crisis in that we don't have a play book to get out we actually do have a playbook it's a three pronged approach it's providing the appropriate health policy in other words a really stringent measures to control the contagion I'm number two adequate fiscal stimulus in number three adequate monetary stimulus and that's a playbook of that we've seen in China there on the other side of this and that gives me a lot of hope that if the US does things right it can be sooner rather than later let's hope so in D.

B. frauds what do you markets make of it that it seems have reacted that's positively what's included in the program well the main issue is that markets are just really looking for more there is one person who said basically nothing would be enough this week and that's a little bit fatalistic by it you know it we have now one point nine trillion we had somebody earlier saying they wanted to see more than twenty trillion total in terms of stimulus so the ECB is coming out and doing its thing the the reserve bank of Australia did some new measures this study even started a money market mutual fund liquidity vehicle but it's it's still just not enough enough and there's still so much uncertainty which at the broader picture here of we still need to be looking at the virus cases how the containment goes how the economy is fair schedule now you mention it was about the OB I will start the expecting into the use of the Philippine central bank action really stepping up but this is the the the the indeed what everything actually make any difference really well that's the thing that's the tricky right even with these cuts some people are actually saying that if you cut too much then you get to a point where liquidity is actually stretched even thinner depending on the mechanics of it and people are really looking for the physical side of things that the physical fight is also tricky because that house they go through the process and you know you also have the issue of if you're getting a margin call now even if there's a headline saying ECB is going to do this that's not helping you as you need to make your margin call right so there is there is still a lot of things that have to go through the system and that's not necessarily able to reassure markets that much right at the moment yeah I suppose my question is does that change in maybe a week or two weeks time when things become more apparent with the code of ours output and the knows that there's a massive contrast between actually what China is doing the PPO see far fewer cuts than the fed did not score a lot of people's attention just briefly right yeah that's interesting and to answer your first point yes of course as we go along as we get more information as we see how this plays out hopefully in the next week or two we will start to get clarity will start to see your cases in your cases in the U. S. but it also depends on the type of reports we get if we are seeing more clusters are foreseen containment but yeah then from there I mean it's there's just so much still to and to be dealt with and how the economy is will come back and that there are a lot of question

"A let's talk a bit about trade in the markets this morning so I've been twenty four hours president Donald Trump is issue to series of trade threats on three continents it's a reminder to financial markets that the president is comfortable heading into an election year using tariffs as his main source of international economic leverage but as our next guest points out without a trade truce and a US China trade deal the global economy is headed for recession will joining us now is in the test saw who is director of research at wisdom tree very good morning to the test that is not the sort of base case for most the the global economy goes into recession next year but it is for you is that right whoa oh base case is that we could could get some trade deal done because of the presidential election but to yesterday's comments and comments we frequently heard of last few months personal risk on to that so we think that the risk of going into a recession is very high and and we believe that we were started slipping into recession we can see that international trade has slipped considerably global patch the minis indices while they may have patted the little last couple of months but they've been heading south in the below the fifty marker of Dimock demarcation between the construction and expansion so we think that you know do the comments made yesterday and and and and in the months before really increase the risk of recession by many fold is it also part of the mold of the global tariff issue because it's not just China those Atari problem with Donald Trump is threatening massive tariffs on France but also because the Harris on Brazil and Argentina I mean it seems to be among the many fronts this trade worn is that part of the engine which is driving what you're talking about absolutely so you know it started off with primarily a US China trade will but if the reason the success in in trump actually of protecting the did you S. from Chinese imports than that blueprint will be deployed elsewhere we've seen a lot of that this week the terrorists on metals from Argentina Brazil because he's unhappy with their currency policies is hope trump tools and hot I'm happy with the tax policies it in in the on the side of it every year end within days within Europe and he may you that increase terrorists here as well so this punitive tariffs applied relive the place ain't on top of sanctions will re knows our players he wrong in Venezuela so they did the number of protectionist policies or increasing by many fold yeah so protectionism is a is a significant concern but did you think the markets have been there for much too complacent overseas becoming now increasingly difficult actually to price trade war especially when he sees you to becoming so widespread possibly so the impact of these trade wars has probably been a manufacturing so many factions being weak globally but the consumer in the labor market been holding up pretty well and on a global basis not just in the US but in Europe as well but that may not last forever as you know that there will come a point where a slowdown in manufacturing could bleed into the rest of the economy if if the presidential election is will the way to the back end of twenty twenty even if there is a last minute Catholics to get something done it may happen too late and that's why I think the risk of a global recession is pretty high at this point what about the European aspect of that because of the low to focus on to the German dates of French staters well and Italian a sense that we need some sure really where this is moving in European terms we have a new head of the C. B. of course is trying to move towards a whole review of that policy in trying to keep things together what's your take on Europe going into twenty twenty yes I think it you your pet will be a particular interesting area because we will return to we know that interest rates or negative in Europe so the ECB's policy space is very limited we have to think a lot more you know creatively in terms of what he does for a in terms of reaching into his toolbox we know the quantitative easing when deployed previously had been criticized heavily for you know being a set price re re re face rather than goods and service press refresh rate so I think could easily be will respond to some of those criticisms at the same time the European Commission is under new leadership as well and DC be under new leadership of the Christine Lagarde who is a politically astute leader I think that that they'll be a time for creative thinking and that could involve money tree in fiscal institutions becoming closer together even in Germany which is being very very against you know anything beyond interest rate policy you know we are seeing political change there as well the eight SPD are pushing for towards abolishing the zero black policy of balanced budgets if we start seeing that those cogs move we could start to see the ECB and Los number fiscal stations across Europe becoming closer together yeah me seventy seven is dedicated in the pipeline at least if not longer so you yeah we'll have to see but you're a fun as Mrs also meeting today to discuss kind of reforming the year every year and and the banking unit of but it just also want to get your take on a pet because thought it was a pop the more immediate issue folk markets and we've had already put mixed signals about whether we get a get further cuts to output say if Iraq's oil minister speaking saying that they would want to diesel cut of four hundred thousand barrels per day to offset slowing Dimond I mean a lot of other say that does not seem likely that sent out live voice you've taken it is yes Sir it's good it's clear that the opac at least need to extend current cuts that that's a baseline to wed at least to the middle of next year until they have the next policy meeting so I think the okay to keep the policy taking over by sort of mid policy even media policy meetings but beyond that I think the reason a strong incentive to cut even further because we'll prices all extremely weak at this point in time and they're not working knowledge in some of the geopolitical risks but that not seen as something that okay call really could control but the it's hard to for these OPEC countries to expand their topics into it in into the oil fields in an environment of low we call prices one of the top of that Saudi Arabia is just about to float it's a it's a another company a Saudi Aramco and it needs a stronger role of prices for the food to meet its valuations I know he's already notes down these valuations of two one point five two will play seven trillion away from to treat him before but is we embarrassing to go for something even lower than that so Saudi Arabia as a de facto head of OPEC will be pushing all members for deeper cuts alright miss ash thanks very much indignities show the director of research and

"America we focus on on treasuries the most but there's a lot going on in european fixedincome markets as well and while everybody knows that the fed has been trying to move to a tighter policy for some time now the ecb is really still very much adding more stimulus to the system and perhaps that that's the central bank that that we need to watch more closely at the moment because they're probably the one that has a more influential move because it's not a similar pattern which the fed is going to do this is a new regime that the ecb is going to move into way to that again what do you mean so the ecb is still adding liquid out nightmare their balance sheet now meanwhile the economy is growing very very strong renison syms to numbers today yeah and and yet they they have a promise that they're not going to sell layoff guys you don't make that change well yeah i mean wh why have you committed yourself to 12 months into the future which is namely that they're not going to stop their balance sheet built until september and then it will be quote unquote quite some time after that before interest rates move higher now they're still negative right so so i think there's a ways to go when when we look at valuation treasuries are actually much closer to fair value than european bonds are at the moment on okay we so you're things see a sell off in european bonds still yes and so what are you what are you do to position yourself as cas with the moves of this week depending on her expectations for future valuations you sell no chance take advantages and things you did before for example if you thought the mark was going to continue solve until we see a traitor change in bonn pricing in the us but you're saying we're near fair value that would suggest the time to sell bonds is over while i think from evaluate headed by banzon and have cycled is over while w we we look at the bond market we look at a variety of different things i mentioned valuation we look at momentum factors as well we look at some mean reversion factors i think all of those are very very important agreement at the mall meant none of them are telling us that old boy let's let's go all in at to.

"I think the most important variable is that the market is looking at the feds to traditional allies and traditional is mean though only two policy objective stated do mandate employment and inflation look at the fed in that way employment is green in terms of tightening and inflation is somewhere between a yellow flashinglight anywhere but if you bring in third fact and i think that's what the what mock is on the rest of meeting which is concern about future financial stability then this may be a tighter fed than what the markets believe right now let's pick up all the conversation around global monetary policy what the central banks are doing of course fabio sketch of of your wanted this would fund is still with us fabio in terms of what the ecb said lawyer druggie was talking about richard brazil writing a lovely please on the bloomberg pointing out that from the vantage point of the ecb the world looks like an increasingly dangerous place again quoting from the state with downside risks primarily related to global factors continue to exist and yet we saw the year olds strengthen to the highest level since august of 2015 what was your key take away here from what lawyer dry but i would imagine that the president was referring to these leak moustache that will come in the autumn on the reversal of the cue we in the us i then fooled by the same kind of policy in europe mohammad ibn was seeing that we are in a gold at least in the us we this steady growth these growth has been spilling over to europe and some other parts of the world the little bit in china some would in japan so it seems that the fundamentals are slowly improving for the global economy but the big elephant in the room he's this massive monetary stimulus that has been injected india corner me for a decade now and how to reverse the stimulus is.

"That just that the fact that the your shut up so much it was the reason why the ecb leaking that story the day after that may have misinterpreted what they were trying to work to say with draghi speech i don't think that that has been very successful but i do think that that shows that the ecb would like to see a somewhat softer euro moving ahead specially to give inflation room to move the move had for the so we'll well there to jawbone and down i mean is that the only way they can deal with that i think we are go to quite cautious a more cautious ecb its communication moving ahead because i think that that would be quite realistic but it also shows sort of them the split that the ecb is is it right now the difficulty that they're having giving the economy that's running quite well especially if you compare to some of the other events markets but then you see that the actual target indicator inflation is just not moving at his unlikely to move significantly at least for the months ahead when they have to announce that tapering tapering move when i think about how vessel fits into the context of the why the story and the fed is obviously pom ponsolle of this the central banks have to react to the five the fed is is moving ahead can spread just get too big and as a result of which they got a con follow one on between uh on behind perhaps that i think that it's also just about where europe is in the cycle at the moment things are better eight qe was obviously announced to deal with the deflationary pressures that europe was experiencing the back than in 2015 that has faded away draghi is mentioned that that has faded away so he sort of paving the way for that tape bring announcement to come but i do think that at the same time with inflation peaks a week a a he is absolutely right in the second half of that famous now famous interest speech that we're going to need monetary accommodation for quite a while to comes to thank you very much indeed.
