Italy During and After the 2008-9 Crisis. Is it Over? And What are its Country Specific and Euro-area Causes and Impact - Carlo Cottarelli (Imf) With Comments By Alberto Alesina (Harvard)


Italy During and After the 2008-9 Crisis. Is it Over? And What are its Country Specific and Euro-area Causes and Impact? The Italian economy has not performed very well in the aftermath of the 2008-09 global financial crisis. This has reflected a combination of factors, some of them pertaining to the overall Euro-area crisis, some of them Italy-specific. Now Italy seems to be emerging from the crisis, although the recovery is still tentative.

Why has Italy suffered so much from the 2008-09 crisis? Has its economic outlook now really improved? And how will policies and developments in the rest of the European Union affect Italy?
