It is not our task to buy time

Interview with Jens Weidmann published in the newspapers of the Leading European Newspaper Alliance on 17 May 2016

Bundesbank President Jens Weidmann believes that buying governments more time is not an objective but a by-product of the current ultra-accommodative monetary policy.

Otherwise, central banks would come under pressure to keep interest rates low in order to ensure sustainable public finances. Mr Weidmann argued that, in such a scenario, they would have to withstand this pressure.
