TECHNOCRATS VS POLITICIANS: THE NEW ITALIAN GOVERNMENT
The new Italian government has been announced and it is obvious that we will have a fight between technocrats and politicians. All the positions have been covered by highly qualified technocrats; however, will they be able to govern without the backing of the political forces. Will they face a hostile Parliament which will jeopardize the fulfilment of their task? Taking into account the current crisis, perhaps it is a good idea to keep politicians away from government... but.... is this possible or viable? Monti and his colleagues have a huge task ahead. I wish them luck, because they are going to need it.
