Some reflections on the Riksbank's repo rate decision

Some reflections on the Riksbank's repo rate decision

Having read the Riksbank's minutes of the latest monetary policy meeting (3 July) it is time for some reflections on the subject. The decision to leave the repo rate unchanged raises a number of questions and it is clear the the Riksbank's direction is struggling with several dilemmas, which the members assess in different ways. Consequently there is a lack of consensus in the decision taking; but what is more alarming is that there is a lack of consensus on the actual importance of the monetary policy for the economic development.

Michael Wolf's blogpost from Almedalen, 2 July 2011

Sometimes journalists ask me if I would not like to do something more socially engaging than working in a bank. I usually answer that I honestly cannot see anything more important in society right now than to ensure there are solid banks.

The Euro zone is running onto the ball while Sweden is standing on the sideline...

The economic crisis in the Euro zone is hastening integration in the Euro zone by linking together the financial policies of the Euro countries and supervision of the banks. It is hard to see any other way forward, as the crisis clearly shows that a currency union cannot be held together by a common monetary policy alone. Up to now, politicians have focused on one obstacle at a time without making any progress, but by also looking at all the government finances and bank as a whole, the Euro zone  – to use a football metaphor - is running onto the ball.
