Italy Is Getting A New Prime Minister, And His Very First Comment Is Going To Make Germany Nervous

Enrico Letta

Nearly 2 months after the election, Italy is getting a new Prime Minister.

After a tumultuous series of negotiations, the details of which are too arcane for anyone to care about, liberal Enrico Letta has been selected by the President to try to form a new government.

He’s not officially the PM yet, but he will be, as he seems to have the blessing of both parties.

Anyway! He’s already making waves, by taking on Europe’s austerity obsession.

An anti-austerity wave is starting to take hold, as the austerity movement gets discredited.

Finally some hope for Europe.
