Franco-German proposal good base for recovery, but more needed to ensure success

COVID-Recovery

The French and German governments proposed an initiative for a recovery plan for the consequences of the Corona crisis includes recovery bonds and grants for the EU countries that were hard hit by the crisis, as proposed by the European Parliament last week. However, with a planned volume of €500 billion, the plan falls short of the €2 trillion called for by the European Parliament. With regard to the climate target for 2030, the wording is vague.

German Constitutional Court ruling/ECB

The German Constitutional Court declared the decisions of the European Central Bank on the Public Sector Purchase Programme to be contrary to its powers. The lesson to be learnt from this judgment must be that the governments of the eurozone must come back to terms with reality. A common fiscal policy will ease the burden on monetary policy.
