STUCK IN THE MUD: European Central Bank President Mario Draghi says the euro area economy should grow modestly by the end of 2013 but it is not out of danger as it struggles with recession and too much debt.

EASY MONEY IF YOU CAN GET IT: The bank's 23-member governing council left its key interest rate unchanged at a record low of 0.75 percent.

HELP YOURSELVES: Draghi said it was now up to governments to get their economies growing. While governments have cut spending to control their debts, they have been slower to bring in longer-term structural reforms.
