The European debt crisis has triggered debates over the TARGET2 imbalances. This column discusses gold flows across Federal Reserve districts and points the similarity of such operations to liquidity flows from Eurozone’s ‘core’ to its ‘periphery’. Though the institutional setting in Europe differs, important lessons can be drawn from the US example. Cooperation between regional Reserve banks was essential for the cohesion of the US monetary union. Such cooperative spirit will be important for the smooth operation of the Eurozone.

Inflation’s picking up in the U.K. China’s stepping back on the monetary accelerator and markets are bouncing around moderately in early trading. Asian equities rallied on the back of Wall Street’s overnight performance and Chinese credit data. Meanwhile, Europe was dragged back by fresh worries about Banco Espirito Santo, which sent the Portuguese bank’s shares diving another 15% and pushed up yields on the government debt. At the same time, signs of a softening German economy haven’t helped improve the mood.
