Italy - Population

Following over three years of uninterrupted gradual growth, the economy stagnated in the third quarter, owing to muted contributions from both domestic and external demand. Survey-based indicators point to protracted economic weaknesses in the fourth quarter as tensions between the government and the European Commission (EC) escalate. On 13 November, the government returned the budget to the EC essentially unchanged after the Commission demanded spending growth was moderated and the target-deficit narrowed substantially, thus significantly increasing the likelihood that the EC will launch an infringement procedure against the country for breaching EU budgetary rules. On the previous day, Banca Carige—a mid-tier lender rooted in Italy’s northwest—approved recapitalization measures worth EUR 110 million to alleviate its heavy burden of non-performing loans, along the lines required by the ECB in order to avoid financial contagion. On a somewhat more positive note, on 26 October S&P lowered Italy’s outlook to negative but left its rating unchanged, surprising many market analysts on the upside.
