20: Liliana Gorini | Italy's New Government, China, Europe, "Fascism", and the Renaissance

Kirk Meighoo published on

Italy is a global hotspot these days. It is at the centre of the most important issues facing the world today: illegal migration and human trafficking, flooding from Africa to Europe through Italy after the NATO overthrow of Gaddafi; the coming to power of previously marginal anti-establishment parties which have overturned the traditional parties and forces, what some call populist, xenophobic, anti-immigrant and fascist; the challenge to the European Union's viability and political-economic model; the push forward of China's massive Belt and Road initiative into the first G7 country; and the challenge to re-order the global political, financial, and economic order away from the expolitative and unproductive London-Wall Street-Washington axis.

I am pleased to have on the podcast Liliana Gorini, chairwoman of the Italian political party MoviSol, Movimento Solidarietà, which is in partnership with the current government.
