Will Italy need a financial rescue this year, and how would a bailout affect the Eurozone?

THIS week our Voice of the City poll, run in association with PoliticsHome.com, is asking for your views on contagion in the Eurozone, as the debt crisis hits Italy and ministers in Brussels debate the latest round of potential bailouts, rollover plans and managed defaults.

We’re asking members of our panel to give us their views on Italy’s future, from whether the Eurozone’s third largest economy will need an EU-led bailout during 2011, to its future in the single currency and the wider consequences of an Italian default on the world economy.

To answer these questions and more, readers can apply to join the Voice of the City panel – made up exclusively of those working in business and financial services in and around the City – by applying at www.cityam.com/panel.

The results of the poll will be printed in Monday’s edition of City A.M.
