Debate over the gradual decrease in currency value

European Central BankBank of EnglandHave symmetry likeInflation targetThere are many economists who should adopt[7].. The Bank of England has set an inflation target of 2% ± 1%, while the European Central Bank says it is "less than 2% and close to 2%". There is criticism that the European Union Bank's low goals are low. But the European Central Bank is in a position to curb inflation. Some believe that such a commitment is deciding interest rates that do not meet the wider needs of the European economic climate.

This criticism of the inflation target is not limited to the European Central Bank, but is also true of many central banks. Considering that it is adopted by the Bank of England, it can be evaluated that this issue is an extension of the conflict between Britain and the United States during the Allied military period.

There is criticism that the European Central Bank's low interest rate setting is not appropriate in the region of Europe where the land price bubble is occurring.アイルランドBecame a factor of the land price bubble. Low interest rates for the euro area as a wholeDeflationIt is set for avoidance.

Debate over independence

The European Central Bank is defined as a central bank that operates independently without political intervention. Its purpose and authority were established by politically compromising British and American feuds. In any case, the European Central Bank itself makes decisions about how to exercise its powers to achieve its goals, ensuring operational independence. Many of the central banks of each country in the European Union are outside the euro area and are independent.National Bank of Denmark, The Bank of England has similar regulations.

Consensus among economists is that the existence of an independent central bank is the best way to avoid macroeconomic manipulation for political purposes. On the other hand, in some countries the central bank may be neither independent nor independent. The background to this is economic convenience and credibility to prevent inflation, but even in such a situation, accountability exists from the perspective of democracy (for example,Bank of Canada,Reserve Bank of New Zealandand so on)[8][9].

Some view the independence of the European Central Bank as undemocratic, and some criticize the decision-making process and goals. The content is inflexible because the European Central Bank rarely informs the majority of citizens in the Union, has an independent status, andhuman rightsInfringementnatural environmentFrom this point of view, the mechanism of feedback is divided about the influence of the monetary economy. In fact, feedback from advisory bodies is prioritized.

The European Central Bank has not published or solicited comments on its proposed projects. Even after the announcement of their actions and decisions, they do not directly ask the public for their opinions on the web page. It is said that details of internal meetings are also not disclosed to hide the internal division of the board.

European Central BankEuropean ParliamentとEuropean Union CouncilAccountable to. The Council of the European Union has the power to appoint officers of the European Central Bank, Vice-Presidents and other boards. The nominated candidates must first be approved by the European Parliament and then, after approval by the Council of the European Union, the areas of responsibility for each officer. The European Central Bank Governor is required by law to submit an annual report at the General Assembly of the European Parliament. In addition, the president and representatives of the board are expected to report four times a year to the European Parliament's Economic and Monetary Commission. Such reports can be made in exceptional cases at the request of the European Parliament or the European Central Bank.

European Union citizensHas influence over European Central Bank's policy decisions through national elections. But if the changes in economic outlook are demonstrated by democratic means, there is a limit that the elected politicians cannot directly convey to the European Central Bank.
