The German central bank raised the idea of an emergency “capital levy” in its monthly report.
The Bundesbank said that the levy would have to be a one-off “imposed in conditions of extraordinary national crisis”, in order to limit negative consequences for investment, and potential capital outflows.
It acknowledged that a nation in crisis would have difficulty making a convincing case to depositors and investors that any such levy would be a one-time measure.
