TRENT - At the Trento Festival of Economics, the Nobel Prize in Economics Joseph Stiglitz stigmatizes the "incompetence" of the Meloni government in the management of Pnrr funds.
In the briefing with journalists preceding the conference at the Festival, the American economist, to general surprise, stated: "The problem with your government is the high level of incompetence it has shown in the management of European Union funds, which they are extremely important. In fact, a good use of these funds could provide a good stimulus to the whole economic system to reduce the risks deriving from high inflation. If they continue to manage funding in this way, a recession will be increasingly likely".

"It's like in the Titanic: if the ship sinks we can't ask ourselves who is good and who is bad, first we have to save ourselves, together, and then we think about everything else.
