Presentation of the book Dieci cose da sapere sull'economia italiana prima che sia troppo tardi by Alan Friedman. In conversation with Lucia Annunziata and Gerardo Greco.
Will I ever have a pension? Does Europe help us or harm us? Who pays for the bailouts of the banks?
Understanding how the economy works is fundamental if we want to understand the mechanisms that govern relations between us and the state and make the right decisions for our family and for our future. Ten things to know about the Italian economy by Alan Friedman is a book written with an understandable language, far from that of insiders, essential for all those who do not want to be more used by the shouters of politics. Real numbers, figures and statistics to respond with the facts to those who promise easy solutions, to counteract the politicians who launch proclamations and lie on very important issues: Why does Italy not grow anymore? Why does Italy not create more jobs? Why are Italians the most taxed in Europe? Which Italian politician can you trust most? What future should you really expect for our country?
"In this book I tried to explain the economy in a simple way, a topic that touches the lives of all of us, explaining how things really work, where we are going and what we can do to save ourselves. As long as we're in time." Alan Friedman
