To counter the high bills, in the EU27 only the executives of Germany and France have allocated more resources in absolute terms than those put in place by the Draghi government. If between September 2021 up to now Berlin has approved spending over several years equal to 264.2 billion euros, Paris, on the other hand, has allocated 71.6 billion, while the Draghi government has disbursed 62.6 billion. This is said by the CGIA Research Office which elaborated the Bruegel data, from which it emerges that German families and companies will be able to benefit from a total amount of aid equal to 7.4 per cent of GDP. Read also In relation to GDP, the only country that precedes the Germans is Malta (7.7 per cent). This is followed precisely by Germany (7.4), Lithuania (6.6), Greece (5.7) and the Netherlands (5.3). In overall terms, in this last year the 26 EU countries (data from Hungary are not available) have made 566.2 billion euros available to families and businesses, equal to 3.9% of European GDP. To counter the expensive bills, the Cgia continues, the Meloni government could dispose of an amount not exceeding 15 billion euros for this last part of 2022, of which 10 will be left as a “legacy” by the Draghi executive and another 5 that should arrive from the EU. Indeed, Brussels could allow individual countries to recover the 2014-2020 structural funds not yet spent or not committed in a binding manner. If, as probable, the new government will extend the measures approved with the Aid ter decree (cost of about 5 billion euros) also for next December, in our opinion the other 10 billion available are certainly significant, but not sufficient. to significantly sterilize the extra costs that families and businesses will be required to bear in this last part of the year.
