Good News From ITALY!

The Italian Central Bank has a new President, Mario Draghi.
Draghi is a world class economist, former Harvard Professor and present Vice-President of Goldman Sachs. He's widely appreciated and well beyond petty political disputes.

In a difficult moment for Italy, this nomination comes as a breath of fresh air. The aim was to give a stong signal of credibility to the international community. I believe that that objective has been reached.

My only regret is that this kind of choices in the INTEREST of the whole country are very rare and happen only under circumstances of very heavy crisis.

Italy has first class people, and it is a first class country. Let's hope that our politicies be dictated by the superior interest of the country, independently from the political colour of the government.
