ECB pandemic emergency purchase programme (PEPP)

The ECB 750Bn pandemic emergency purchase programme (PEPP) have so far purchased 543Bn of assets (18 Sept) The majority of this has been public sector debt with Germany (24%) Italy (19%) France (15%) and Spain (12%) accounting for 70% of the assets purchased by the ECB.

If there is a second wave will there be more shut downs and pandemic unemployment payments across Europe that additional funding will be required for?
Have the countries done enough stimulus to keep keep business going?

If more of either is needed countries will need to issue more debt to pay for it and is the 200Bn that is remaining in the PEPP enough?

PUP, TWSS, EWSS, etc.

Restart grants, etc.


Massive public expenditure on income and business supports.

All borrowed.

At low cost thanks to the ECB PEPP.
