'Toxic' Italy Could Pull Europe Down, Warns Fratzscher
The European Union’s top court backed EU guidelines designed to prevent taxpayers from footing the bill for bailing out stricken lenders, strengthening the hand of Brussels regulators as Italy fights to shield some bondholders caught up in the nation’s banking crisis. Tuesday’s decision is a show of support for the European Commission, which updated its crisis rules for banks in 2013 as part of a shift from taxpayer-funded bailouts to bail-in, the practice of imposing losses on investors before public money can flow. DIW Berlin President Marcel Fratzscher discusses with "On the Move" hosts Guy Johnson in London and Caroline Hyde in Berlin.
