  11. 11. Monetary policy in Europe S “The entire Eurozone is close to recession, again, and deflation, a general deflation, is a real possibility. Interest rates are near zero, we’re at that zero monetary bound. So we can’t slash interest rates to get the economy moving again. We can’t use fiscal policy either. Partly because everyone’s deficits are at or above what the euro system allows them to be, partly because those who most need to borrow to expand simply cannot borrow at present. Greece, even after the private sector creditors took a 70% haircut, still has debt well north of 100% of GDP and, as above, would pay near 9% to raise more.”
