Business Still Feeling Damage Done in 2008, Says Dryden
Low interest rates are helping to reduce euro-area public debt, but rigorous enforcement of European Union fiscal rules is also needed to bring the burden down by a “sizable” amount, the European Central Bank said. Since the end of the financial crisis, euro-area countries have struggled to unwind a debt ratio that stood at around 93 percent of gross domestic product in 2015, with low inflation and anemic growth adding to the challenge. Easing that strain remains a key policy priority, and monetary stimulus provides an opportunity by keeping government borrowing costs low, the ECB said in a study published on Wednesday. JPMorgan Asset Management Strategist Alexander Dryden discusses growth challenges with Bloomberg's Francine Lacqua on "The Pulse."
