JPMORGAN: Here’s What You Need To Know About The Radical Comedian Who’s Offering Everyone In Italy A Free iPad


Business Insider – Today I had the chance to talk to three very high-level financial  professionals about the upcoming Italian election, which takes place this  upcoming Sunday and Monday.

They were nervous.


In parole povere: “Consegnaci la tua libertà ed avrai in omaggio un iPad”?

Italy has made a lot of progress reducing its borrowing costs, ever since  Mario Monti came into power in late 2011. But while borrowing costs have come  down, the economy has not picked up, and that’s created a backlash.

What you have is a battle between the candidates of “credibility” (like Mario  Monti) and the populist candidates, like Silvio Berlusconi, and Beppe  Grillo.

And though Silvio Berlusconi is a cause for consternation, it was Beppe  Grillo that made them appear physically sick to their stomach.

Grillo — who is a comedian and the head of his own Five Star Party — offers  up ideas that the less-off in the public like, but which sophisticated people  know are bunk. Italy has too much debt? Just don’t pay it! Oh and everyone gets  a free iPad with free internet (Seriously).

JPMorgan has a note out today titled A Crash Course In Grillonomics, which  likes the Grillo movement to SYRIZA in Greece. SYRIZA is the left-wing party  that came in a narrow second in last year’s elections. And though SYRIZA is more  clearly left wing, both parties have thrived by promising to do the impossible  and stick it to the man (although SYRIZA is pro-Euro, whereas Grillo is  not).

This table put together by JPM has a nice outline of Grillonomics.
