Der lender of last resort vor Gericht

  • Winkler, Adalbert

Ist das OMT-Programm der EZB mandatswidrig? Dieser Beitrag wendet die ökonomische Argumentation der OMT-Kritiker vor dem deutschen Bundesverfassungsgericht auf die seit Oktober 2008 praktizierte Vollzuteilungspolitik an. Der Vergleich zeigt, dass danach auch die Vollzuteilungspolitik mandatswidrig ist. Die EZB steht daher nicht als Staatsfinanzierer, sondern als lender of last resort vor Gericht. Ein Richterspruch gegen das OMT würde folglich eine ökonomische Argumentation bestätigen, die 150 Jahren moderner Zentralbankgeschichte widerspricht und den Euroraum den Instabilitäten von Finanzmärkten ausliefert. Ein solcher Währungsraum ist weder funktionsfähig noch wünschenswert.
