EZB erhöht Zinsen zum ersten Mal in 11 Jahren
July 22, 2022 -
Die Europäische Zentral Bank erhöht die Zinsen in der Eurozone zum ersten Mal in 11 Jahren, ein Versuch die rasant steigende Inflation und die drohende Energiekrise in den Griff zu bekommen.
The interest rate has been at or below zero since 2014 but price growth in the eurozone hit a record 8.6% in the year to June, well above the bank’s target of 2%, putting pressure on the ECB to increase the rates, with another rise expected in the autumn.
Some economits have complained it is too little, too late, with the U.S. Fed and Bank of England having begun to raise their rates months ago.
