Measures for the Growth and Public-Debt Repayment in Italy

Abstract

Some of the more relevant interventions that are proposed in Italy to foster economic growth and markedly reduce its public debt are here analysed. Conditional on general and specific measures (structural reforms, public investments not ncluded in the ratio debt/GDP, additional investments, reduction of the tax wedge, depreciation of the euro against US dollar), simulations of economic growth rates and usual fiscal parameters are made. The only intervention that in the long run seems to foster country’s economy and at the same time drastically reduce its public debt is the devaluation of euro. It must be accompanied by the continuous pursuit of reforms that operate in a general form on the whole system.
