Everybody in financial markets admired the Bundesbank for its solid monetary policies.
Maybe it is time for the ECB to raise rates. Raising rates from -0.5% to 0.0% would not slow the economy. On the contrary, it is a tax cut, only the ECB would get less money to conduct its stupid policies.
Just to put things into perspective: The last time #inflation was >5% in Germany, the Bundesbank key interest rate was 8.6%. Today, #ECB's main rate remains pegged at 0%.

Headline inflation came in at 4.9% for the month, compared to the same month last year.
The data comes at a time when policymakers are waiting for more data on a new Covid-19 variant, omicron, which was reported for the first time last week in southern Africa.
The question going forward is how the ECB will square the high inflation readings with uncertainty over the pandemic.
And... Some countries with elections coming, like France, put inflation down artificially by imposing price controls and freezing prices of certain products(e.g. gas) till after the election.
Without price controls, rent controls, etc inflation would still be higher.
European monetary policy seems to be out of control. Lagarde, already convicted for negligence in the past, just doesn't seem to care and keeps printing and partying like never before.

German unemployment data actually shows better than expectations.

Whatever the cause of inflation the consumers have to pay the higher prices and European savers are losing around 5% this year by the grace of Christine Lagarde.
Christine Lagarde is just trying to milk the ECB as much as she can for her personal benefit before moving to BlackRock?
