  • Stability Bonds must not lead to a reduction in budgetary discipline among euro-area Member States. A notable feature of the period since the launch of the euro has been inconsistency in market discipline of budgetary policy in the participating Member States. The high degree of convergence in euro-area bond yields during the first decade of the euro was not, in retrospect, justified by the budgetary performance of the Member States. The correction since 2009 has been abrupt, with possibly some degree of overshooting.

  • The story is a bit different with the expenditure-driven adjustments. In five of the ten adjustments for which there is data, the output gap was more than one percentage point of GDP at the beginning of the adjustment. In four of these five cases the gap was more than two percentage points of GDP, as shown in Figure 5. These four cases were Finland (1996-2000), Netherlands (1996), Norway (1994-95), and Sweden (1994-98). However, in none of these cases was an economy as far below its potential as the United States economy in 2010. The biggest output gap among this...

  • We know the interventions that can save most women’s lives. If every woman had access to essential maternal care, 74% of maternal deaths could be prevented4. If all women had access to self–controlled means of HIV/ AIDS protection and were in a position within society to use these methods, millions of HIV/AIDS deaths could be prevented. Thus, we do not so much need new technology, as we need to ensure universal access, utilization and equity. But ensuring universal access, utilization and equity means that our health services cannot continue to function as “business as usual.

  • With regard to the interest rate environment, we expect that the ECB will continue to raise key rates in the near future. There are several reasons why the ECB will tighten policy somewhat. One is that inflation has remained above the target for a long time, albeit moderately, and in the recent survey reported by the ECB inflation forecasts were raised slightly compared to the previous one. Also, the monetary overhang, which the ECB interprets as one leading indicator for future inflation, increased further due to persistently high money growth.

  • Apple products are easy to use because they eliminate “clutter.” This same design philosophy applied to every Steve Jobs presentation. There were no bullet points in his presentations.

  • It is scarcely to be expected that banks operating in dif- ferent regions, serving different classes of customers and fol- lowing different policies, would have uniform experience. Therefore, for each of the factors to be analyzed, we have supplemented the composite analysis for all banks by an in- dividual analysis for each bank that submitted a sufficiently large sample. These individual analyses, which are presented in Appendix B, indicate the degree of variation among banks and the extent to which the average experience of all banks typifies theexperience of any one bank.
