Reforms, then Reforms, again Reforms and finally Reforms. This is what foreign governments are asking of Italy and it is what we Italians should do to finally get out of the crisis and return to being recognized as a “great” nation as well as the desire and will of international companies to return to investing in our Country.
For a long, too long time, Italy has no longer been governed through an overall vision and a truly liberal and reforming perspective. We have always been the country of pacts and contracts rather than the reforms actually implemented. So why should a foreign company invest in Italy today rather than Germany or the United States? And what could make our country attractive again after being the fifth world power until not many years ago? To answer these questions, Paolo Zagami closes his trilogy on the “International Company” and carries out a lucid and detailed analysis, in reality not only economic but also and above all political / social, with very strong and precise accusations to the “Italian System”. to say the set of institutional, political, entrepreneurial, cultural and social components that have contributed to the decline in the competitiveness of our country and because of which today “doing business is a business”.
In particular, the work highlights, often in an ironic and pungent way, the various problems that hold back our growth and, without pretending to be exhaustive, suggests a long series of proposals, solutions, ideas and recipes divided into nine thematic areas, each of which dealt with always from an international point of view: Constitution, Liberalization, Foreign Affairs, Bureaucracy, Work, Expense, Tax, Justice and Innovation. All open, interspersed and closed by an equally interesting fictional part in which an unidentified high-level diplomat and his interlocutor discuss hastily on the language between Rome and Washington about how Italy could and should recover from the immobility that the has made an almost “Third World” country an industrial power.
