- Government debt will skyrocket everywhere due to the COVID-19 crisis, particularly in many Eurozone countries.
- The skyrocketing government debt and the lack of risk sharing among member states require monetary financing. Luckily, the ECB is delivering just that.
- In my view, we have shifted to fiscal dominance in the Eurozone from monetary dominance. I believe that the COVID-19 crisis is a real world experiment of MMT in the Eurozone and elsewhere.
- In my view, we are not heading for a new euro crisis now due to the ECB's early commitment in this crisis to monetary financing. However, the end of monetary financing in the Eurozone could kick-start the next euro crisis.
