Italy’s incurable economy

Silvia Sciorilli Borrelli, (2019), “Italy’s incurable economy”, Politico, 13 Μαϊου

The European Commission said last week that the government’s flagship measures — an early retirement scheme and a citizens’ income (a monthly allowance for certain jobseekers) — failed to trigger the growth the League-5Stars coalition had envisaged. To make matters worse, the forecast from Brussels was that the deficit is growing, and in 2020 it will smash through the 3 percent deficit-to-debt ceiling imposed by EU rules, reaching 3.5 percent.
