Italy’s economic challenges and the constitutional referendum
Fri 2 December 2016, 13:00 – 14:30 GMT
On 4 December, Italians will vote on a referendum to decide on proposed constitutional changes that would strengthen the power and stability of the government, streamline parliament and law making by allowing the Lower House to decide on most matters, and make the relationship between central and local government clearer.
Together with ongoing economic weakness, fiscal problems and stability issues in the banking sector this makes for a “Triple Witching Hour” for Italy, with potential severe and profound economic and political consequences.
Lorenzo Codogno, Visiting Professor at the LSE European Institute, will discuss possible political scenarios and their economic and financial consequences for Italy and the rest of Europe.
