Opinion: (Mario Monti, Italian Prime Minister): “‘Italy, in order to develop economically and socially, needs Europe, and Europe to be stronger needs Italy,’ Monti said in a speech in the northern city of Reggio Emilia at a ceremony honoring the Italian flag.
“‘No European country is so strong to think it can go forward alone in facing the great global economies,’ he added. ‘It’s time for everyone to do their homework. No one can think they can do less than the others.’”
Comment: Do you have to be on the verge of bankruptcy to talk like that? Isn’t it possible in advance?
