Book launch of The Political Economy of Italy’s Decline, by Andrea Lorenzo Capussela
Italy’s problems are unsolved, visibly, and remain a latent threat to the Eurozone. Productivity has stagnated for a quarter of a century, and discontent has spread; real disposable income is at the level of the mid 1990s, and the ‘barbarians’ (FT) have now taken office. The book retraces the roots of these phenomena in the logic of Italy’s politico-economic equilibrium, and argues that in order to shift onto a more efficient and fairer one, the country would need a battle of ideas on what kind of society it has become and what kind it wants to be.
