Bundesbank President Jens Weidmann warned today that the Eurozone is still not crisis proof. He pointed out that “certain issues like the lack of credibility of fiscal rules or the harmful sovereign-bank nexus still have to be adequately addressed.”

At the same time, fighting crises could force unelected ECB bankers to take political positions that’s beyond its own mandate. And, “acting beyond the mandate would also undermine people’s trust in the central bank.”

He added, “at the end of the day, it could become more and more difficult for the European Central Bank to focus on its promise of a stable currency.”
