ECB members discuss rate cut, timing, and frequency

ECB Governing Council members Robert Holzmann, in an interview with Austria’s Kronen Zeitung, noted the possibility of Europe reducing interest rates ahead of the US, citing the slower economic growth in Europe compared to its transatlantic counterpart.

Holzmann underscored that the timing of such cuts would “depend largely on what wage and price developments look like by June.”

Yannis Stournaras, in remarks to Greece’s Proto Thema, articulated a more aggressive stance, positing that “cutting rates four times this year, by 25 basis points each, is possible.”

This perspective reveals a division within ECB, as Stournaras acknowledged skepticism among some colleagues who advocate for a more cautious approach to rate reductions.
