This paper explores the question of whether there is a trade-off between maintaining price stability and financial stability (much in the same way as there can be a trade-off between price stability and output stability when supply shocks occur) and if so, which of the two objectives should take precedence. The authors analyse how such a trade-off can arise and further examine the issue of how to define and monitor financial stability and assess which policy instruments the ECB could deploy to maintain financial stability.
