Nowotny: Weaker euro nourishes optimism for growth in 2015

Coeure. Austerity is largely complete in Europe
The most European countries have made progress in the view of the Governing Director Benoit Coeure with the consolidation of its public finances. Therefore, a discussion of austerity in Europe is largely completed, Coeure said on Friday at a lecture at Johns Hopkins University in Washington. In the past four years, European governments have been forced by the financial markets to tighten their belts considerably closer. Many European countries have done their homework. However, there are some states that are far from their budgetary targets.
In obvious allusion to France Coeure said that it was unfair to be lenient in countries which did not reform efforts. The French government wants to reduce its budget deficit, given the difficult economic situation in small steps. The gap will be according to plan this year to 4.4 percent in 2015 and 4.3 percent of economic output. Also in 2016 the minus 3.8 percent are still well above the conditions laid down in the EU treaties limit of three percent. This should only 2,017 below 2.8 percent again – two years later than originally planned
