The European Central Bank left interest rates and its money-printing program unchanged Thursday and President Mario Draghi said it would review in December what more it could do to tackle the threat of weak inflation.Draghi told a news conference that the bank would fully pursue its asset purchase scheme up to 60 billion euros ($68 billion) a month and underlined he could extend it beyond September 2016 as part of efforts to boost eurozone growth and bring inflation closer to its target of close to 2 percent.Eurozone economic growth is slowing again, with even powerhouse Germany seeing a recent string of poor data, and one of the ECB's favored gauges of inflation expectations, the five-year, five-year eurozone breakeven forward, has fallen to 1.7 percent from 1.85 percent in July.
