Posted By TheNewsCommenter: From Foxbusiness.com: “ECB officials saw little contagion from Italy's debt woes”. Below is an excerpt from the article.

Top officials at the European Central Bank expressed concern at their last rate-setting meeting about higher government borrowing costs for Italy but saw little evidence that the debt troubles were spreading to other eurozone countries.

The written account released Thursday of the Oct. 25 meeting of the bank's 25-member governing council revealed discussion of increasing borrowing costs for "one large euro area country" but that "contagion" to other markets or countries "had so far remained limited."

The officials were concerned bigger deficits in indebted countries could hurt market confidence. Italy has the second highest debt level in the eurozone, at 132 percent of GDP.

The officials reiterated their stance that they saw an "on-going, broad-based recovery" and that they would end their bond purchase stimulus at year end.
