Italia. ‘Eurozone exit’. Italexit. Si inizia a parlarne.

Tutte le valanghe iniziano con quattro sassolini. Poi, questi iniziano a ruzzolare ed a trasportarsene appresso degli altri. Ma quando la valanga è in atto, nulla può arrestarla e tutto distrugge sul suo cammino.

Il sussurrare prima, il parlarne apertamente dopo, sembrerebbero essere i primi quattro sassolini: potrebbero fermarsi lì, ma non si sa mai. Chi fuggisse subito forse potrebbe salvarsi.

O segnali sono tre, forti e chiari.

Il primo segnale consiste nel fatto che dai primi di aprile tutti i media liberal usano il termine ‘bloc’ per designare quelle che prima denominavano ‘Unione Europea’. Se disgregare la ‘Unione Europea’ sarebbe stata una eresia degna del rogo, bonificare un ‘bloc’ degli stati incompatibili diventerebbe un’opera di potatura quasi doverosa.

Il secondo segnale consiste invece nel fatto che il termine ‘new lira’ sta iniziando a comparire alla chetichella, ma proposto con forte veemenza.

Il terzo segnale è l’uso del termine ‘Italexit’ utilizzato non più per segnalare l’uscita dell’Italia dal blocco europeo, bensì solo dalla eurozona.

È nella logica delle cose che i paesi europei virtuosi non ne vogliano più sapere di finanziare le allegre gestioni italiane.

Che l’Italia lasci l’eurozona senza uscire dal blocco potrebbe essere una soluzione di compromesso.

Ma facendo quattro conti della serva, l’Italia andrebbe incontro ad un’inflazione venezuelana, aggravata dal fatto che nessuno sano di mente acquisterebbe i suoi titoli di stato.

L’ultima cosa che resterebbe da fare sarebbe il devolvere almeno un terzo delle ricchezze ancora detenute dai privati a ripianare almeno in parte il debito delle amministrazioni pubbliche. Ma senza cambiare la struttura dello stato, questo riprenderebbe imperterrito sulla strada già seguita.

Riassumendo, per l’Italia si prospetta la società delle miseria.

EU cracks: Italy warned it could face eurozone exit as coronavirus crisis deepens

ITALY should seek help from its own wealthy citizens, rather than relying on Germany and other EU countries, to bail it out as it struggles to bounce back from the coronavirus pandemic, a former MEP and economist has warned.

And Hans-Olaf Henkel suggested the best solution would be for Italy to leave the eurozone and go back to their own currency, which he dubbed the “new lira”. Mr Henkel was speaking against the backdrop of widening splits between the north and the south of the bloc, and particularly Germany and Italy, on how best to mitigate the economic and societal impacts of the virus.

Manfred Weber, leader of the European People’s Party in the European Parliament, became the latest figure to speak out, calling for “strict controls” to prevent Italy and Spain embarking on massive public spending sprees using EU cash.

Mr Henkel was also responding to comments by billionaire europhile George Soros, who last week suggested the EU had a duty to help Italy, which has been hit harder by the disease than anywhere else in the bloc, by spreading the cost of rebuilding the country’s economy among members of the eurozone.

The former MEP explained: “I share Soros’ views on Italy but do not believe that there is any justification to show ‘financial solidarity with Italy because of the corona crisis’.

“What have Germans to do with the decisions taken by Italian politicians on their health system or the (very late) decisions on the lockdown in Lombardy?

“On average the per capita wealth of Italians is way above the wealth of for instance Germans.

“So, before Italian politicians like Salvini or Conte or anybody claims money from citizens of other countries to mitigate the financial results of their decisions they should ask their own wealthy people to show solidarity with their own people.

“Rather than letting Italian politicians borrow money from and at the risk of other countries, Germany should make a generous gift in exchange for Italy leaving the eurozone and go back to their own currency (New Lira)!

“This way Italy’s Central Bank could devalue their currency to become competitive again, get the economy back on its (own) feet and prosper like Italy did before the euro.”

Mr Henkel, who stressed his respect for a “globalised, liberal and democratic world”, added: “I know Soros from a meeting some years ago when we discussed the first euro crisis.

“At that time I advocated the euro to be split into a ‘Northern Euro’ and a ‘Euro for the South’, in each case the currency to reflect the different economic realities prevailing in, for example, Greece, Italy and France on one hand and, for instance, in Austria, The Netherlands and Germany on the other.”

Addressing a proposed solution – “forever bonds”, in other words, loans which would never have to be repaid, he added: “Soros’ idea of eternal European loans may work on a national basis like they did in the UK and in the US in World War 1, but they would not work on a European level.

“Not only would we be confronted with the same moral hazard such as in the case of euro- or coronabonds, they would also be limited to the eurozone hence create a new border within Europe.

“On one side are those with solidarity for Italy like Germany.

“On the other are those without like Denmark or Sweden or Poland, none of them being in the eurozone.

“The real bombshell severely damaging the EU did already go off: Brexit!

“And here both Soros and I engaged heavily to avoid it.

“We both seem to agree that it is a disaster for both Britain and the EU.

“At the end, it might be more one for the EU than the UK.”
