For those of you looking at weekly #PEPP purchase numbers, let me give you a brief explainer how to read our numbers. For PEPP, there are three types of publications: weekly, monthly and bimonthly. #NerdyThread #ECBWatchers #Servicetweet @ecb 1/11 ecb.europa.eu/mopo/implement…
On Mondays at 15:45 CET, we publish the Eurosystem’s PEPP holdings (at amortised cost), as of the previous Friday, on our website: 2/11
By taking the difference to the previous week, one obtains the *net* purchases for the previous trading week. This is the difference between gross purchases *settled* in that week (i.e. traded two trading days earlier, so from THU to WED) and redemptions (from MON to FRI). 3/11

Interesting debate between @BJMbraun
and @mh0rvath now live at #nextgencentralbanking conference. Issues of institutional amnesia, strategic ignorance and democratic control of central banks by
@BJMbraun, whose paper is here: transformative-responses.org/the-project/ne…
@mh0rvath responds by arguing that the fact that central banks actions have wider effects is often benign or even positive. Moreover, there is nothing progressive in dismantling CBI (mentioning Hungary as an example)
@mh0rvath's argument that central banks evolved into focusing on price stability because "that is what they are good at doing" is a very simplified view on the various conflicts related to the historical emergence of CBI and the price stability mandate (tbf he only had 5 minutes)

Relevanz online hat die sinnentstellende BILD-Berichterstattung zum Gassen-Streeck-Papier erst (oder besser: nicht einmal) durch die #SchwereSchuld-Debatte erhalten. Auf Facebook kaum Resonanz auf Link, auf Twitter bei tschechischem Arzt (1), dann bei Kritiker am Text (2)
Zum Vergleich: Interaktionen auf den Link zum "The Lancet"-Text #PEPP. (Im ersten Tweet fehlte die potentielle Follower-Zahl bei Twitter: 1,8 Mio. Sagt aber nichts aus: davon entfallen 1,7 Mio auf @Bild, wo kaum wer reagierte)
Wieso sinnentstellend? BILD behauptet, tolles Konzept von Gassen/Streeck zum Schutz der Alten sei fies abgebügelt worden.
Tatsächlich war Konzept v.a. Stimmungsmache gegen Lockdown light kurz vor Entscheidung dazu – "Keine Verbote", "Eigenverantwortung".
DEM widersprach GfV.

Hunderte Wissenschaftler fordern, nicht schnell zu lockern –Zähne zusammenbeißen, die Zahlen richtig senken, dann geht's uns allen besser: Ihr Appell zum Ausweg aus der Corona-Krise t-online.de/nachrichten/de…
#ZeroCovid #ContainCovid19
Der Appell, veröffentlicht in Lancet, hat keinen griffigen Namen, nichts Hashtag-taugliches. Habe Initiatorin @ViolaPriesemann gefragt. Sie so: "Wir könnten es als europäische Initiative PEPP nennen – Pan-European Position Paper".
Mit #PEPP aus der Corona-Krise..?
"Pan-European" ist ein zentraler Bestandteil: Ziel ist, dass alle europäischen Länder so vorgehen. Damit es nicht zu Ping-Pong und Re-Importen kommt oder Grenzen geschlossen werden, wenn ein Land erfolgreich eingedämmt hat und Nachbar nicht . #PEPP

1/ The #ECB monetary policy decisions are out.

A lot of stuff. Nothing really comes as a surprise

ecb.europa.eu/press/pr/date/…
2/ Interest rates are unchanged, and will remain so until inflation is robustly close (but below) to 2%
3/ #PEPP:
a) It is extended until March 2022
b)Envelope increased of €500bn (total €1850bn)
c) It is rolled over until at least the end of 2023

Il mercato sta cercando circa 500 miliardi di euro in più di PEPP, più altre OMRLT con condizioni potenzialmente meno rigide. Pensi che sia quello che devi fare perché il mercato se lo aspetta?
Non ci sentiamo obbligati a fare ciò che il mercato si aspetta da noi. Siamo guidati dal nostro mandato. Ci sono una serie di parametri importanti che possiamo modificare. Non è solo l'importo, è anche la durata. E si tratta di comunicazione.
Ciò che è chiaro è che dall'inizio della pandemia, il #PEPP e le #OMRLT si sono dimostrati altamente efficaci. Pertanto, è probabile che questi siano gli strumenti principali per la nostra ricalibrazione.
Così @Isabel_Schnabel membro del Comitato esecutivo della BCE oggi

On Friday, I gave a speech at Deutscher @juristentag about the distributional effects of the COVID-19 pandemic and the danger of “unequal scars”. My goal was to add a European dimension to the debate. Here is my usual Twitter summary, including some of the charts. 1/11
The pandemic is a global shock that hit all euro area countries almost simultaneously. But it has become increasingly clear that the pandemic has very different impacts on different countries, as can be seen from the @EU_Commission’s forecast of economic growth. 2/11
There is a negative correlation between the projected fall in GDP for 2020 and (a) the extent of government-imposed restrictions, measured by the Oxford Stringency Index, and (b) the dependency on tourism. 3/11

Die #EZB muss endlich ihren Job machen dürfen. Dazu muss das Mandat der EZB geändert werden. Unabhängigkeit ist jedoch kein Blankoscheck wie in der Euro-Krise. Der Bundestag braucht einen geldpolitischen Dialog mit der Bundesbank nach dem Vorbild des Europäischen Parlaments. (1)
Anleihekäufe gehören zum Instrument der Geldpolitik von Zentralbanken. Auch jede Zinsentscheidung wirkt sich auf die Wirtschaft aus & ihre Effekte müssen Zentralbanken in den Blick nehmen. Die ökonomische Kritik des #Bundesverfassungsgerichts ist daher schwer nachvollziehbar. (2)
Die Staatsfinanzierung ist der EZB nach den #EU-Verträgen verboten. Die EU-Verträge zwingen die #EZB, so zu tun, als ob sie keine monetäre Staatsfinanzierung betreibe. (3)

This thread is for those of you who don’t find the time to read my #PetersbergSpeech in full. Link to English translation (including slides): ecb.europa.eu/press/key/date…. Link to original German version: ecb.europa.eu/press/key/date…. Op-ed @welt (in German): welt.de/wirtschaft/art…. 1/11
Main message: Without the #PEPP and our other measures, we would now presumably be in the midst of a severe financial crisis. The measures taken by the ECB are (1) necessary, (2) suitable and (3) proportionate to ensure price stability in the euro area. 2/11
Important clarification: This speech is not about #PSPP, subject to a court case @BVerfG. It is about the measures taken in response to the pandemic, designed specifically for the pandemic & containing own safeguards to protect fundamental principles of the currency union. 3/11

The @ecb responds to the @BVerfG: “The PEPP and the APP were proportionate measures under the current conditions for pursuing the price stability objective, with sufficient safeguards having been built into the design of these programmes...”

ecb.europa.eu/press/accounts…
@ecb further explains: “the proportionality assessment of any monetary policy measure had to consider, among other things, the degree to which the measure contributed to achieving the monetary policy objective [...] and possible unintended side effects [...].”
And, reiterates proportionality a third time wrt to the #PEPP: “the PEPP was a measure which was proportionate to counter the serious risks to price stability, the monetary policy transmission mechanism and the economic outlook in the euro area [...].”

@nzingaretti @sole24ore IL #PEPP ATTUALE VALE 6 #MES. La #BCE ha quasi raddoppiato il PEPP, da 750 a 1350 miliardi (di cui 230 circa per l'Italia), METTENDO ALL'ANGOLO L'USO DEL MES. Consideriamo che, allo stato attuale, meno di 240 miliardi dei 1350 messi a disposizione sono stati impiegati... 1/3
@nzingaretti @sole24ore ... Con questa aggiunta la capacità di tiraggio è enorme. Il rendimento del #BTP è andato giù. Caro ´@nzingaretti, avete ridotto la #sanità ai minimi termini coi vostri PIANI DI RIENTRO. Fate bene ora ad ammettere di aver sbagliato, ma per cortesia abbandonate uno... 2/3
@nzingaretti @sole24ore ... strumento fallimentare (#Grecia docet) come il #MES, legato all'#austerity. Non è ora di cambiare? 3/3

"Estendendo a 1350 miliardi il programma di acquisto di titoli di Stato in risposta all'emergenza pandemica (#PEPP, Pandemic Emergency Purchase Programme) la #BCE ha preso una decisione in qualche modo obbligata."
Cosi' il responsabile economico della Lega, senatore Alberto BAGNAI. "Come la Lega ha piu' volte sottolineato, sulla base della piu' elementare logica macroeconomica e dell'autorita' dei piu' importanti economisti mondiali, da Blanchard a Giavazzi a Buiter, l'unica via di uscita

Es ist sinnvoll wenn #EZB Staatsschulden garantiert damit Euro Staaten aus dem Corona Schock heraus wachsen können. Es muss für #PEPP Programm weiterhin gelten Kürzungsauflagen wie bei der Euro Krise zu unterlassen!
und auch jenseits des Kapitalschlüssels der Mitgliedsstaaten Staatsanleihen zu kaufen. Sonst wäre dies wie den Patienten künstlich zu beatmen und ihm gleichzeitig Blut abzunehmen.
Das Mandat der #EZB sollte aber geändert werden damit sie auch Wachstum und Jobs unterstützen und Staaten finanzieren darf, um weitere Konflikte mit dem Bundesverfassungsgericht zu vermeiden. Nach der Pandemie müssen auch Vermögende in Euro Staaten in Pflicht genommen werden!

In my interview with @mastrobradipo @repubblica, I argue that the @ecb has responded swiftly and forcefully to the deep crisis that Europe is facing. The impact of our measures is substantial, and we stand ready to expand all of them, as needed, in line with our mandate. 1/6
Many of the #ECB’s monetary policy measures are bank-based, which is crucial for countries like Italy where small and medium-sized enterprises play an important role. The #ECB always assesses carefully that its measures are suitable, necessary and proportionate. 2/6
We need to make sure that our monetary policy is transmitted to all parts of the euro area. Diverging spreads are often a sign of fragmentation, and we are fully committed to countering such developments. The #PEPP is the right policy tool in this respect. 3/6

Yesterday the Governing Council @ecb took important decisions, further easing the liquidity conditions for banks & fostering lending to the economy. Philip Lane provides a comprehensive explanation of the macro environment & our measures in a recent blog post. #ECBexplains 1/12
I will add some technical explanations, starting with the #TLTROs, our targeted longer-term refinancing operations. This graph shows the rates for a bank that met the lending threshold of 0% under the old TLTRO (12 March), giving rise to more favourable rates. 2/12
Under the new TLTRO (30 April), banks meeting the lending threshold of 0% pay even lower rates in the “pandemic period”: currently -1% (versus -0.75% before). The assessment period for the lending threshold now starts one month earlier to reward lending in March. 3/12

All eyes will be on the @federalreserve and the @ecb policy meetings this week, particularly as the @EUCouncil meeting last week was directionally encouraging but lacking in #policy specificity.
Regarding the #Fed, we expect the Committee to reiterate its guidance that the target range for the federal funds rate will remain at zero until after #coronavirus-related disruptions to the #economy have healed.
Further, while the #FOMC will have to update its statement a good deal to better reflect the severity of the #economic contraction underway, it will also take the opportunity to describe the transition from emergency support of market functioning to a long-term #LSAP regime. Image

Q: What does #ContactTracing look like now, what could it look like in the future and do I need to be worried about privacy?

A: When an individual tests positive for #COVID, staff reach out to identify their close contacts/public spaces they may have visited while contagious.
Based on this information, staff will determine if a contact is at low, medium or high risk of contracting #Covid_19. Staff will contact people who are at medium or high risk to notify them and provide instructions for self-quarantine.
More here about how #coronavirus contacts are traced: tmj4.com/news/coronavir…

This is another very important part of our crisis package @ecb of March 18, which will facilitate the access of banks to our liquidity operations by temporarily easing collateral standards, thereby supporting bank lending to the economy. 1/5
5 important measures: (1) Expanding the use of credit claims as collateral through ACC (additional credit claim) frameworks: accepting government-guaranteed loans as collateral, facilitating acceptance procedures for ACC frameworks & reducing reporting requirements. 2/5
(2) Lowering the minimum size for accepting credit claims. (3) Raising the concentration limit on unsecured bank bonds within the collateral pool. (4) Granting a waiver to accept Greek government bonds as collateral. 3/5

The @ecb response to #COVID19.

My new blog (link below) and a thread on what #centralbanks should do to face the crisis

(1/9)
In short
- Households & firms need massive emergency #credit to cope with #COVID19
- #centralbanks are critically accommodating credit markets
- CBs must guarantee sustainable credit conditions
- CBs must ensure that credit go where it's needed
- #HelicopterMoney is option
(2/9)
#fiscalpolicy is crucial to ensure most vulnerable get the help needed. Ambitious fiscal plans have been pledged.

Volume and price countries get on markets is key to scale-up public response to #COVID19 and for #sustainability of sovereign debt.
