Rise of the Italian Technocracy
How did Italy come to be ruled by an unelected banker-EU-dominated technocracy? This episode looks at the messy maelstrom of melodrama that is Italian politics, the decline and fall of Berlusconi, the emergence of a hopeful and potentially radical new politician (the “most popular politician in Europe”), and the ascension of Mario Monti to lead a technocratic and banker-dominated government designed for one purpose: to punish the population with austerity measures. This is the new Italy, this is the new Europe. Welcome to the EU, leave your democracy at the door.
