    THE global economy has stopped sinking and central bankers are pausing for breath. As The Economist went to press on July 2nd, the European Central Bank (ECB) was expected to keep its main "refi" interest rate unchanged, at 1%.

The focus on policy rates may put the ECB in a bad light but these are no longer a r...
