Ciccarelli, Matteo, Osbat, Chiara, (2017), «Low inflation in the euro area: Causes and consequences», ECB Occasional Paper Series No 181, Ιανουάριος
This paper investigates the causes and consequences of low inflation in the euro area after 2012 and analyses whether monetary policy has been successful in dampening the risks associated to low inflation. The paper finds that the missing inflation was primarily due to cyclical factors – domestic in the earlier part of the period and global in the latter part – and that the Phillips curve remains a useful tool in understanding inflation dynamics over the period of interest.
