BERLIN (Reuters) - The German government believes that low interest rates should only be around for a limited period, German Finance Minister Wolfgang Schaeuble was quoted as saying by German newspaper Handelsblatt.
"The German government thinks low interest rates should remain a temporary phenomenon," he said in the newspaper's Friday edition in response to a reader's question, adding that the government was monitoring the negative effects of low interest rates.
