Η αποστολή της Σουηδίας να απαλλαγεί από τα μετρητά μάλλον το παράκανε

The Swedish central bank on 12 February 2015 lowered its key interest rate to a record low of minus 0.10 per cent and announced a bond-buying programme, citing that a more expansionary policy could help push up inflation. The cut - effective as of 11 February - aimed at increasing inflation which has flattened out amid lower oil prices and uncertain economic recovery abroad, the Riksbank said. The central bank's inflation target is 2 per cent, while underlying inflation was this year projected at 0.9 per cent. The repo rate is the interest rate that commercial banks borrow or deposit money for 7 days at the Riksbank. The negative rate means that banks have to pay money for keeping deposits with the Swedish central bank. The repo rate was last lowered in October when it was cut to 0 per cent.
