    Stagnation is a period of slow economic growth often characterised by low interest rates and low inflation. It is most commonly associated with the development of the Japanese economy since the early 1990s. In the euro area, the corona crisis together with an already ageing population, diminished productivity growth, and, in places, high levels of debt even before the onset of the current crisis may weaken the economy's ability to recover. There is a danger of the economy slipping into an equilibrium of low interest rates and low inflation, i.e. a liquidity trap. There is also a risk of inflation expectations declining. The policy response in the euro area to the economic outlook weakened by the corona crisis has been swift and decisive. Well-targeted policy measures can mitigate the risk of the economy following an adverse path.

    Stagnaatiolla tarkoitetaan hitaan talouskasvun kautta, johon usein liittyvät alhaiset korot ja hidas inflaatio. Vahvimmin stagnaatio on keskusteluissa yhdistetty Japanin talouskehitykseen 1990-luvun alun jälkeen. Euroalueella koronakriisi yhdistettynä jo valmiiksi ikääntyvään yhteiskuntaan, hidastuneeseen tuottavuuskehitykseen sekä paikoitellen jo ennen koronakriisiä korkeiksi nousseisiin velkatasoihin saattaa heikentää talouden elpymiskykyä. Uhkana on luisua hitaan inflaation ja alhaisten korkojen tasapainoon, ns. likviditeettiloukkuun. Riskinä on myös inflaatio-odotusten vaimentuminen. Euroalueella talouspolitiikalla on reagoitu päättäväisesti ja nopeasti koronakriisin heikentämiin talousnäkymiin. Oikein suunnatuilla politiikkatoimilla pystytäänkin vähentämään negatiivisen kehityskulun riskiä.

    Stagnation as the new norm and fiscal policy are examined in a New Keynesian model with adaptive learning determining expectations. We impose inflation and consumption lower bounds, which can be relevant when agents are pessimistic. The inflation target is locally stable under learning. Pessimistic initial expectations may sink the economy into steady-state stagnation with deflation. The deflation rate can be near zero for discount factors near one or if credit frictions are present. Following a severe pessimistic expectations shock a large temporary fiscal stimulus is needed to avoid or emerge from stagnation. A modest stimulus is sufficient if implemented early.
