Let us take a closer look at a level playing field in #Banking, and why regulatory clarity is so important.

While crises often span borders, the pain is always domestic. At the political level, therefore, the temptation is for a narrow, national policy response that tends to make the playing field uneven - the very opposite of what we should be aspiring to.
When the Great Financial Crisis hit in 2007-09, for example, national approaches prevailed - notably in the form of ad hoc ring-fencing and recapitalisation of domestic banks by governments. Cross-border #Banking receded significantly.

#Italy #EU #Rome #Debt #Crisis

DZ-Bank (Deutsche Zentralgenossenschaftsbank) fears the third debt crisis in the euro area since 2008 in view of the rapidly increasing national debt in Italy.
"The corona crisis is increasingly proving to be a severe test for the debt sustainability of the countries of the European Monetary Union," writes DZ Bank analyst Daniel Lenz in a study that is available to the Handelsblatt in advance.
The central institute of the cooperative banks assumes that debt in Italy will increase to 160 percent of economic output by the end of the year. The country is one of the countries most affected by the corona pandemic in Europe and

1/ I've read many theories about why Italy was hit so hard by the #COVID19 crisis. Twitter Doctors and alike wrote about proxemics, air pollution or lung capacity. Ultimately, it might come down to one thing: failed politics has broken the healthcare system.
2/ Italy's hospital were clearly overwhelmed with the number of patients during the peak of the coronavirus crisis. According to the Gimbe Foundation, the Italian healthcare system is deteriorating because of insufficient funding. A trend that can be observed all over Italy.
3/ The government has cut 37 billion Euros of healthcare funding between 2010 and 2019. As you might know, the European debt crisis peaked between 2010 - 2012. Unfortunately the government is not only spending little, it is also wasting a lot: about 23 billion Euros every year.

1/ Aura Timen, hoofd LCI van het @rivm, blikt in het @nrc terug op een periode waarin het #coronavirus Nederland overviel.

Een aantal uitspraken vind ik... opmerkelijk, en heb ik langs de Nederlandse reactie op de H1N1-pandemie gelegd. ⬇️…
2A/ Timen: “Het concept lockdown kwam alleen aan bod in historisch perspectief, in tijden van de pest, of lokaal tijdens de grieppandemie in 1918. Een lockdown behoorde niet tot het arsenaal van maatregelen bij uitbraken in de Westerse wereld.”
2B/ In de eerste dreigende week van de H1N1-pandemie (24 april 2009) wordt gesproken over soortgelijke kwesties: sluiting van scholen, maatregelen op Schiphol en thuisisolatie.

#Iran #Teheran #economy #crisis

The hardliners in the Iranian parliament want to order President Hassan Rohani for "treason". "Rohani and his Foreign Minister Mohammed Javad Sarif have committed treason and must be held responsible for it,"
said MP Mohammed-Taghi Nagh-Ali in parliament on Sunday. Ther policies have led to the current economic crisis, which is hardly acceptable for people. "Rohani's rhetorical excuses are no longer acceptable, listening to him is futile, so let's order him in," the MP said,
according to the ILNA news agency. The rapid drop in oil prices has hit Iran hard. The rial has recently lost over 50 percent in value, and many prices have risen accordingly. Many Iranians currently have to pay more than one million rials for a simple supermarket purchase.
