This week:

Topic of the week: Europe: japanification?

  • The similarities between Europe and Japan are indisputable, and worrying: ageing of the population, zero rates, etc;
  • There are also important differences which make it possible to hope that Europe is not caught up in a deflationary spiral. The main difference is the strength and speed of monetary policy response;
  • The main point then is perhaps the fact that doubt remains. The efforts made have put the area on a different trajectory than that of Japan. But the battle is far from won.
