The prime minister asked for an intervention Anna Maria Bernini, out in the open after the writings that appeared on social media. To oppose the world of “private equity funds” is it lawful to plunder houses and shops? Would the ongoing devastation be merely a defense of the oppressed from the so-called assault finance? “But shouldn’t an occupant of an institutional role re-read what he writes? And, above all, evaluate its consequences?“. Therefore the President of the Senators of Power Italy hopes for an intervention by the head of the Giallorossi government so that “immediately distance yourself from this delusion“.
“New fascism of Trump and Salvini”

Furthermore, referring to a phrase said by the economist Enrico Giovannini, he also spent a few words on the plan: “I didn’t agree with all the cards but, as Giovannini said, you didn’t have to agree on all of them. The point is to help the country“.
Mazzucato in August 2019 had intervened on the possible risks on society of a capitalism that does not change and governments that make a mistake in their interventions, saying they are very worried by the advance of a new fascism. And he argued that in the absence of a concrete alternative strategy for growth – based on inclusiveness and not just on redistribution to someone – characters such as Matteo Salvini in Italy or Donald Trump in the United States “capable of intercepting and growing this wave of dissatisfaction, a bit like what happened in the 1930s“.
