In Venezuela aleggia un rischio. C’è il pericolo di un corralito

Argentines protest against the Supreme Court and it's backing of the banking curbs imposed to halt a run on the banks, in front of the court building, January 10, 2002. Analysts said that freezing Argentine's savings may save the creaking banking system from collapse but public confidence is dead, putting the banks themselves at risk. The larger sign says, "I took my money to the bank so they would take care of it, not so they would steal it." REUTERS/Rickey Rogers

CARACAS – Il “Decreto di Emergenza Economica” è in questi giorni al centro dell’attenzione del Parlamento che, dopo il dibattito, dovrá deciderne le sorti. Preoccupa, in seno alla maggioranza nell’AN, la possibilitá che in base all’articolo 4 si possa applicare un corralito anche in Venezuela.

Cioè, che il governo possa decidere la restrizione della libera disposizione di denaro in contanti da conti correnti e casse di risparmio. Il termine fu reso tristemente famoso dal governo di Fernando de la Rua in Argentina nel 2001. Il provvedimento, allora duró quasi un anno.
