Stable money is a precious public good. It protects savers and income earners from the erosion of wealth while promoting growth and employment.
Disruptions to the financial and monetary system can stunt economic growth, harm employment and strain government budgets.
A well functioning economy requires a stable banking system. Banking supervision is therefore responsible for monitoring credit institutions’ business activity and maintaining investor confidence.
Confidence in a currency is rooted in cash. In Germany, it is the Bundesbank’s task to provide an adequate supply of high-quality euro banknotes and coins at all times.
Efficient and secure payment systems are the foundation of a stable financial system.
