Getting used to the Euro
AbstractThe Dutch changeover to euro banknotes and coins proceeded both smoothly and swiftly. In spite of this Dutch consumers are still in the process of familiarising themselves with the new currency. One out of three still has not got the hang of the euro as a unit of account. Remarkably, ever since the introduction of the euro consumers have perceived the rate of inflation as being much higher than it actually is. Four-fifths put the price rises down to the euro. The estimated euro effect on retail prices is 1.4%. For the CPI this implies that 0.6 percentage point of an average inflation of 3.6% in the first six months of 2002 is to be attributed to the euro.
