We have just published new in-depth analysis which tracks a worrying path for Italian public debt out to mid-century, showing how the country’s fiscal position is set to become only more fragile in an environment of higher rates but still-sluggish economic growth.
Economists from our Global, Europe and Markets teams held a special online briefing all about the macro and market risks around Italy’s debt profile. During this 20-minute session, the team answered client questions as they addressed key issues raised by our new analysis, including:
- Italy’s macro and rates outlook and our new debt forecasts;
- Whether Italy is heading for default;
- The risk to the euro-zone’s bond markets from Italian debt.
