Our Working Paper Series (WPS) disseminates economic research relevant to the various tasks and functions of the ECB, and provides a conceptual and empirical basis for policy-making. The Working Papers constitute “work in progress”. They are published to stimulate discussion and contribute to the advancement of our knowledge of economic matters. They are addressed to experts, so readers should be knowledgeable in economics.
Disclaimer: Please keep in mind that the papers are published in the name of the author(s). Their views do not necessarily reflect those of the ECB.
Availability: Starting from January 2009 (from WP No 989 onwards) ECB Working Papers are available online only. Hard copies of earlier Working Papers can still be obtained free of charge, stock permitting, by contacting firstname.lastname@example.org.
