The president of the European Central Bank Mario Draghi listens to questions during a news conference in Frankfurt, Germany, Thursday, June 5, 2014. The European Central Bank has cut two key interest rates, one of them into negative territory — a highly unusual step that underlines the urgency of its efforts to keep the eurozone economy from sliding into crippling deflation. It reduced its main interest rate, the refinancing rate, from a record low of 0.25 percent to 0.15 percent. More drastically, it also cut the rate it pays on money deposited by banks from zero to minus 0.1 percent, an unprecedented step for the ECB that aims to push banks to lend money rather than hoard it.

A graffiti is painted on a fence around the construction site of the new headquarters of the European Central Bank in Frankfurt, Germany, Wednesday, May 7, 2014. The ECB is supposed to move into the building by the end of 2014. The Governing Council of the ECB will meet on Thursday. The graffito was created by German street artist 'Case'. He painted a repetition of 16 Pinocchio's puppets on the wood panels surrounding the construction site of the new headquarters of the European Central Bank. The bank allowed artists to spray graffitis on the fence around the ECB during the construction period. (AP Photo/Michael Probst)
