Views on the content of the European Central Bank's strategic assessment have surged, with topics including digital currencies

European Central Bank President Lagarde has written to central bank policymakers asking them not to discuss it publicly until January 23, when they formally announce the agency's forthcoming strategic assessment and its parameters. In recent weeks, opinions on what the European Central Bank has to assess should have surged. Topics include the mystery of keeping inflation low, possible changes to price stability targets, and issues that some people see as potential distractions, such as climate change and digital currencies.
