What Europe Needs to Be European


  • Paolo Pini



The way forward for Italy, within a Europe that has to change. A Europe that is too economics-minded and not politically-minded enough, where growth and employment are stifled by tight budgets. Yet another path is possible, if we still keep the single currency but if we change regulations and economic policies. And introduce more democracy, also in the economy.
