Man in line to be Italy's next Economic Minister: 'Euro is a German prison'

The man Lega’s Matteo Salvini is putting forward to be Italy’s next Economy Minister is an outspoken anti-Euro economist who has described the single currency as a ‘German prison’.

Paolo Savona has previously said that: “If Italy has not already done so, it is time to have a Plan B ready – at the end of the Euro or exit from the same.”

He has also said: “Even if you pretend that the problem does not exist, the European loop is tightening around the neck of Italy.”
