Non è il debito (alto) ma i rischi politici (altissimi) a mettere l’Italia ai margini dell’europa

Terza Repubblica, di Enrico Cisnetto [Rassegna stampa, 14.6.2019] Non prendiamoci in giro, il problema è politico, non contabile. Alla base della procedura d’infrazione avviata da Bruxelles contro l’Italia, c’è la profonda sfiducia che l’Europa nutre nei confronti del nostro Paese, e in particolare verso il Governo pentaleghista, che è considerato del tutto inattendibile. Sì, il debito è troppo alto, ma lo era anche prima, e la tabella di marcia di riduzione del deficit non viene rispettata, ma così fanno anche altri (e infatti, contrariamente a quel che si racconta, la Commissione Ue ha mosso rilievi a diversi paesi con i […]

The Demise of Italy and the Rise of Chaos

Originally published by Roberto Orsi on London School of Economics and Political Science on October, 23th 2013 Future historians will probably regard Italy as the perfect showcase of a country which has managed to sink from the position of a prosperous, leading industrial nation just two decades ago to a condition of unchallenged economic desertification, total demographic mismanagement, rampant “thirdworldisation”, plummeting cultural production and a complete political-constitutional chaos. In a previous post on this very blog, the dire situation of Italy’s economy has been briefly sketched. A few months later, the scenario of a serious disruption of the Italian state’s […]

Italy’s crucial vote (FT.com)

Read the complete article on FT.com Parties are shying away from the radicalism Rome needs Italians go to the polls to choose their next prime minister in a little less than five weeks.

The technocratic government led by Mario Monti as well as decisive action by the European Central Bank have helped restore Rome’s fiscal credibility. Foreign investors have resumed buying Italian paper and yields on […]

Quando le imprese scoprono il fascino della stranezza

Devo ammettere che questo articolo mi ha colpito, quando l’ho letto la prima volta su Internazionale  (traduzione di un articolo dall’Economist), anche perché io sono sempre stato un tipo un po’ “strano” (scuola, liceo, ecc.)… Ho scoperto quindi che la sindrome di Asperger, che molti vorrebbero ridurre ai minimi termini, o che stigmatizzano chi ne soffre, in realtà viene apprezzata nel mondo delle aziende tecnologiche e finanziarie. Anzi, molti anticonformisti e “disorganizzati” sono le menti dietro le più affermate organizzazioni cresciute nel mezzo della “new-new” economy o in ambiti disciplinari hi-tech. La lettura è agevole perché l’articolo è breve. In […]

Italy seen by New York Times

An interesting article on the New York Times describes the actual Italy quite well: depressed, angry, afraid of the future. It’s interesting to see the related photoset too. In Italy the blogger Beppe Grillo wrote about it (in italian). It’s also spoken in the blog Stelle a strisce (italian blog of a woman living in NY)
