    April 15 (Bloomberg) -- European Central Bank council member Axel Weber said cutting the bank’s benchmark rate below 1 percent risks bringing the interbank money market to a standstill.

    “I’m critical of reducing the main refinancing rate below 1 percent” because there would be practically no incentive for banks to lend to each other, Weber said in a speech in Hamburg today. “Therefore, the risk exists that the private interbank market would become completely paralyzed.”
