BERLIN (Reuters) - Bundesbank President Jens Weidmann said crisis-stricken emerging economies should take increasingly critical market scrutiny as a sign they should undertake reforms, a German newspaper reported on Tuesday.
"It's important that the countries concerned understand this as a wake-up call to tackle their problems head on," he was quoted as saying in a pre-publication copy of an article in business daily Handelsblatt due to be printed on Wednesday.
But he added that there were considerable differences between economies: "You should not tar emerging markets with the same brush."
On Tuesday, hopes for strong policy action in leading developing nations eased an emerging markets rout triggered last week after a currency meltdown in Argentina.
