Italija uvaja paralelno plačilno sredstvo, kar de facto uvaja možnost izhoda iz evra. Wolfgang Munchau v Financial Timesu:
A curious thing happened in the Italian parliament last week. The chamber of deputies voted unanimously in favour of a motion to introduce a parallel currency in Italy — the so-called mini-BOTs. It was a non-binding motion. I suspect that many of the MPs in the lower house probably did not know what they were voting for when they called on the Italian coalition government to consider the creation of “government bonds in small denominations”.
Mini-BOTs would look like real money. Their denominations would be the same as euro notes. Depending on how they are designed, Italians could even pay their taxes with them. For this reason they would stand a good chance of becoming an accepted means of payment. Mario Draghi, the European Central Bank president, gave his view last week: “Mini-BOTs are either money and then they are illegal, or they are debt and then the stock of debt goes up. I don’t think there is a third possibility.”
I am not sure I agree with Mr Draghi on this point. The mini-BOTs could be both at the same time — debt with money-like characteristics.
