Italy Isn’t Greece, But That Might Not Be a Good Thing: Chart
(Bloomberg) -- Italy may be maneuvering Europe into a similar situation as Greece did half a decade ago, but a look at public attitudes toward the European Union shows how the euro area’s third largest economy may be more susceptible to venturing into uncharted waters. When the Greek crisis started, support for the bloc was exceptionally strong and it took years of relentless belt-tightening and demagoguery for public opinion to shift. Even today, Greeks have a more positive view of the EU than Italians, who are the most euroskeptic nation in the bloc, according to the most recent Eurobarometer survey.
