Die Jagd auf den Zins oder: die Fiskalpolitik der Regierung Monti und ihre Folgen

  • Alexander Grasse
Registered author(s):

    Mario Monti became Prime Minister of Italy in the autumn of 2011 after the refinancing of Italy’s debt in the financial markets had almost failed. The Monti government has since made the lowering of the risk premium for Italy’s government bonds an absolute priority. This, however, has only been somewhat successful. Although the new debt was decreased and the balance of trade recorded a surplus, an interest rate spread remains. At the same time, the government’s austerity measures only deepened the economic crisis. By contrast, the decision of the ECB in September 2012 to buy government bonds of crisis-ridden states without limitation has proven to be far more effective. The introduction of taxes on higher incomes and wealth to finance growth programmes could now help to resolve the economic crisis. Copyright ZBW and Springer-Verlag Berlin Heidelberg 2012
