Frank Schaeffler, a lawmaker for the German Free Democratic Party, warned against a future permanent European rescue fund with its own banking license, Handelsblatt reported, citing a guest editorial from the politician.
A banking license would be a “door opener” for “high inflation,” Handelsblatt said, citing Schaeffler.
The FDP is part of German Chancellor Angela Merkel’s governing coalition. Schaeffler has been a leading opponent of euro-area rescues.
