This week:

Topic of the week: The European recovery plan: a great opportunity for Italy

  • Italy presented an ambitious recovery and resilience to the European Commission in order to benefit from his payments;
  • This is a great opportunity for Italy to increase public investment in the energy and digital transition, reduce the divergence between North and South, implement reforms and allow an increase in long term growth;
  • The reduction in the public debt to GDP ratio which will result from the implementation of the plan calls for a narrowing of the Italian spread.

Chart of the week

In Europe, the price of carbon has recorded a spectacular increase since the end of 2020 (+ 71% since December 11) to cross for the first time the bar of 50 euros per ton of CO2. This is the result of setting a more ambitious interim target for reducing greenhouse gas emissions for 2030 (by at least 55% compared to 1990) in order to achieve climate neutrality by 2050. This foreshadows a smaller allocation of emission allowances from the EU to companies, which generates pressure on the price of carbon. This is a good way to encourage companies to become less polluting.
