Trichet Calls for Extending EU’s Bailout Fund

European Central Bank [ECB] President Jean-Claude Trichet said European governments should consider extending and broadening the region’s bailout fund, stepping up pressure on leaders to fight the fiscal crisis. “We’re calling for maximum flexibility and maximum capacity, quantitatively and qualitatively,” Trichet told reporters at an event in Frankfurt late yesterday, responding to a question whether the European Financial Stability Facility should be able to buy government bonds. – Bloomberg
