Accountability and the ECB
Sibert, Anne (2009) Accountability and the ECB. Other. European Policy Department A: Economic and Scientific Policies, Brussels, Belgium.

The ECB’s extraordinary degree of independence precludes it from being substantively accountable; hence, to have legitimacy it must be formally accountable.
