Gold investors tend to fear “bail-in” laws for banks, but it seems Italy cannot avoid a “bail-in” for its bankrupt banking system. Last month, I showed how delinquency rates are moving up in the Eurozone. However, most delinquencies are concentrated in the country of Italian prime minister Matteo Renzi. Matteo Renzi complained about the European bail-in law. And why wouldn’t anyone want to make an exception for the Italians? We will see that the concept of a bail-in is perfectly fine, but Renzi does not want a bail-in and has substantial leverage in negotiating a bailout of the bankrupt Italian banking system because of Brexit.
