ECB shouldn't overreact to temporary inflation spike, Lagarde says

  • "The key challenge is to ensure that we do not overreact to transitory supply shocks that have no bearing on the medium term," European Central Bank President Christine Lagarde said Tuesday.
  • Lagard said she sees no sign that a recent spike in prices was becoming "broad-based" across the euro zone economy.

European Central Bank President Christine Lagarde continued play down inflation worries on Tuesday and warned against overreacting to a temporary spike in prices.

"The key challenge is to ensure that we do not overreact to transitory supply shocks that have no bearing on the medium term, while also nurturing the positive demand forces that could durably lift inflation towards our 2% inflation target," she told an ECB conference.

"We will only react to improvements in headline inflation that we are confident are durable and reflected in underlying inflation dynamics," she said.

"We see no signs that this increase in inflation is becoming broad-based across the economy."

North Dakota's 'Flying Farmer' wrecks car during daredevil jump

A North Dakota daredevil known as the “The Flying Farmer” will undergo surgery on Monday after crashing his car during a jump on Saturday.

John Smith, 57, corkscrewed his Chevrolet Caprice as it drove off a ramp in a gravel pit in Makoti in front of a crowd of around 300 spectators.

According to the Bismarck Tribune, Smith suffered “a huge slash” in his arm and has been in intensive care since the accident.

Smith was competing against his son, Brian, 34, to see who could jump their car the farthest.

The younger Smith successfully completed a 90-foot-jump before his father crashed and emergency crews used the Jaws of Life to extricate him from the vehicle.

Smith’s antics are known statewide and he has performed over 100 jumps since the 1990s, but Saturday’s was his first since 2016, when he jumped a burning trailer.
