Nov. 27 (Bloomberg) -- Chilean central bank President Jose De Gregorio said policy makers may need to revise the nation’s 2012 growth estimate because of Europe’s debt crisis, El Mercurio reported today on its website.
The bank currently forecasts gross domestic product will expand 4.25 percent to 5.25 percent next year, De Gregorio told the newspaper in an interview.
The 17-nation euro zone should have fewer members and never should have included Greece, the newspaper cited De Gregorio as saying. Any country exiting the euro zone will cause a “tremendous financial crisis,” he told the newspaper.
