Why Macron keeps quiet?

The crisis in Italy entered into a new phase after the President Mattarella said that the appointment of Professor of Economics, Paolo Savona, as Minister of Economy and Finance could be a blow to Italy’s public debt. In this regard, one of the largest and most important countries of the European Union remains without government, and the political crisis there is only aggravated.
The Italian crisis is one of the problems that the European Union has already faced: the US withdrawal from the Treaty on the Iranian nuclear program, Brexit, migrants, the complicated relationship between Madrid and Catalonia. The situation for Brussels is getting worse every day. And everyone understands it, except for Ms. Merkel, German politicians and journalists who are playing their game. An article published in “Der Spiegel” by German journalist Jan Fleischhauer who calls the Italians parasites, is another confirmation of it. The Germans and the French do not take Italy seriously for 20-30 years. This is a big mistake.
And now you should turn to the French, who dream and strike to greatness. If Berlin has an opinion on all these situations and does not hesitate to express this opinion, then why does Paris keep silence. After coming to power a year ago, Emmanuel Macron missed many opportunities to become a significant European, or maybe world power. He could mediate in Brexit negotiations, Merkel’s failure in the parliamentary elections opened up new prospects for him, the crisis between Barcelona and Madrid could be the impetus for seeking a balance between sovereignty, democracy and Europe. Now he misses a new chance, which gives him a political crisis in Italy!
Simply monitor the Internet and you will be convinced of the absence of serious statements and actions to overcome these European crises from the French president. As a rule, he acts as a financial inspector, trying to maintain the viability of the ECB system without any drastic changes.
Is it worth reminding that the proposals about transformations in the eurozone, sounded from Macron a year and a half, are now finally buried? Will the current president of France have the power to do something after the final recognition of the failure of his reform of the eurozone? Has he not yet realized that Germany does not respond to his proposals? Can he take the risk of talking one-on-one with Germany, which is still strong enough and confident?
All these questions can be answered only by Emmanuel Macron himself and his deeds!

The situation in Italy as a new cause for concern in the EU

On May 27, an attempt to form a coalition government in Italy consisting of the populist and anti-system Five Star Movement and the right-wing League ended in failure. The President of the Italian Republic and the coalition failed to agree on the candidature of Minister of Economy and Finance. Sergio Mattarella announced that he would never agree with the appointment of Minister of Finance, Paolo Savona, an eurosceptic and opponent of Italy’s participation in the eurozone.
So, who is Paolo Savona, whose figure led to the collapse of the new government? – He is Professor of Economics, worked in the Central Bank and in the largest employers’ organizations in Italy, he was in the councils of many large companies and banks. The 81-year-old politician had political experience: he was Minister of Industry and Head of the Department of Public Policy. But over the years, Savona’s views became more rigid. The candidate for Minister of Finance, proposed by anti-system parties, is not only a strong critic of the euro, but also a convinced nationalist and opponent of Germany’s policy. The media published often his statements, and in one of his scientific works he claimed that “Chancellor Angela Merkel managed to realize – though peacefully – Hitler’s plan for German hegemony in Europe”.
And since earlier Mr. Mattarella has repeatedly said about the inviolability of the European parameters for the future of Italy, he does not agree to see in the most important public posts people who lead the country in a different direction. It turns out that the prospect of forming an Italian cabinet of ministers has rested on the figure of the 81-year-old possible minister. And in whose favor this problem is resolved, it has not yet known. In any case, it is not good for the integrity of the European Union.
The process of forming the Italian Cabinet is being watched very carefully in Brussels. Because this situation can lead to another crisis in the eurozone. Let me remind you that the amount of Italy’s public debt is 130% of GDP – after Greece it is the second largest public debt among the EU countries. However, Italy ranked first among the EU debtors, given that it is the third largest economy in the eurozone.
And given the upcoming exit of Britain from the European Union (Brexit), the discontent of Poland and Hungary with the EU migration policy, the withdrawal of Washington from the Iranian nuclear deal, the trade wars with the USA, new sanctions and energy security issues, the current situation in Italy will add problems to Brussels. In addition, on May 29, at the peak of the Italian political crisis, the Project Syndicate published Soros’s comments on the possible collapse of the European Union. It may have been his doing, creating chaos in Italy. Therefore, it is quite possible that soon Rome will say “ciao” to Europe, as London has recently done…

La situación en Italia como motivo de preocupación en la UE

El 27 de mayo el intento de formar el gobierno de coalición en Italia formado por el populista Movimiento Cinco Estrellas y el partido derechista Liga ha fracasado. El presidente de la República italiana y la coalición no han podido llegar al acuerdo sobre la candidatura del Ministro de Economía y Finanzas. Sergio Mattarella ha anunciado que nunca va a nombrar Ministro de Economía y Finanzas a Sr. Paolo Savona, el euroescéptico furioso y opositor de la participación de Italia en eurozona.
Entonces, ¿quién es Paolo Savona, quien provocó el colapso del nuevo gobierno? – Es el profesor de Economía, trabajaba en el Banco Central y en la Organización de Empleadores en Italia, fue en los Consejos de muchas grandes empresas y bancos. El hombre de 81 años tiene la experiencia política: fue el Ministro de Industria y el Jefe de Departamento de Política Pública. Pero con los años sus opiniones se han vuelto cada vez más estrictos. El candidato para el cargo del Ministro de Finanzas propuesto por los partidos antisistema italianos no es solamente el crítico del euro, sino es el nacionalista convencido y opositor de la política alemana. Los medios de comunicación se publicaron sus opiniones, y en uno de sus trabajos científicos aseguró que la canciller alemana había podido realizarse el plan de Hitler de la hegemonía alemana en Europa por medios pacíficos.
Antes Sr. Mattarella hablaba cada vez sobre la firmeza de los parámetros europeos en el futuro de Italia, y por eso no ha aceptado ver en los cargos públicos a unos hombres que conduzcan el país en otra dirección. Se resulta que la perspectiva de formar el gobierno italiano no es posible debido al posible ministro de 81 años de edad. Y ahora no es sabido quién gane y cómo este problema resuelva. En cualquier caso todo esto beneficia a la unidad de la UE.
Bruselas está vigilando con atención y temor por el proceso de formación del gobierno italiano, porque toda esta situación pueda llevar a la crisis de la eurozona. Les recuerdo que la deuda estatal italiana es 130% del PBI (Grecia es el estado con la segunda deuda pública más grande entre los países de la UE). Sin embargo, Italia ocupa el primer lugar entre los deudores de la UE, ya que es la tercera economía más grande de la zona de euro.
Teniendo en cuenta el Brexit en futuro, un descontento de Polonia y Hungría por la política de migración en la UE, la retirada de Washington del acuerdo nuclear de Irán, la guerra comercial con los Estados Unidos, nuevas sanciones y cuestiones de seguridad energética, la situación actual en Italia causaría muchos problemas en Bruselas. Además, en plena crisis política italiana el 29 de mayo en el artículo de Project Syndicate se publicaron los comentarios de Soros sobre el posible colapso de la Unión Europea. Quizás él mismo ayude creando caos en Italia. Por lo tanto, es muy posible que pronto Roma diga “ciao” a Europa como lo hizo Londres recientemente…
