Investigators from European Central Bank Release New Data on Macroeconomics

June 27, 2014

By a News Reporter-Staff News Editor at Economics Week -- Fresh data on Macroeconomics are presented in a new report. According to news reporting from Frankfurt, Germany, by VerticalNews editors, the research stated, "The paper aims to provide a deep rationale for Banking Union in the euro area."

The news correspondents obtained a quote from the research from European Central Bank, "It shows that the banking sectors of core and peripheral countries were responsible for financing the credit boom that created the imbalances and vulnerabilities that later were at the centre of the crisis. The increase of debt ratios in the periphery until 2007 was more significant for the private sector than for the public sector."

According to the news reporters, the research concluded: "The crisis has been as much a banking crisis as a sovereign debt crisis and to avoid similar future risks a European Supervisor and a Resolution Authority are essential."
