Italian Council presidency
I would say that the only expectation we may have is to drop austerity right away and work on employment programmes that can restart a future, especially in southern europe. This presidency risks being one of a lot of promises and zero facts, as it's very close to the system that makes the people of Europe poor and angry.
I have no high expectations for this semester. It will serve Europe's financial elites and never citizens, and be far from the real economy and close to the big powers. It will cause only further problems to employment, proper salaries and more in general the dignity of human beings.
