“In short, the ECB has been very active in responding to the crisis,” Draghi said to committees in the French lower house of parliament. “And we stand ready to act again when needed.”
This could be the European Central Bank’s (ECB) way of assuring people that they are not planning to taper their stimulus like the Federal Reserve.
“Monetary policy cannot create real economic growth,” he added. “If growth is stalling because the economy is not producing enough or because firms have lost competitiveness, this is beyond the power of the central bank to fix.” – Mario Draghi, European Central Bank President

-The ECB is ready to “act” if need (more stimulus?)
