- Unemployment = 10.1%
- Real GDP growth = 0.5%
- Domestic demand growth = 0.3%
- Output gap = -2.2%
And inflation that’s extremely well controlled:
- Inflation = 1.6%
- Compensation growth = 0.4%
Question: Is the ECB acting like a central bank that thinks its economy is flatlined and inflation shows no signs of being a problem? It sure doesn’t seem like it, does it?
