(GermanPolicy.com) – FDP chairman Christian Lindner is against increases in net borrowing as part of the coming Federal Budget beyond 100 billion Euros. The funds for 2022 are already adequate, Lindner emphasized.
It had previously been publicly speculated that the Federal Government’s energy and climate fund would be topped up. Lindner responded with the words that the budget had to “meet all the requirements for solidity.”
The basic lines in fiscal and monetary policy should remain compatible with the majority of voters – including the voters of the two Union parties. Inflation risks in Germany are currently underestimated, Lindner added, which is why it will be necessary for the Bundesbank to prove “monetary policy continuity.”
