Italian phrase of the day
Solo una crisi - reale o percepita - produce un vero cambiamento. Quando si verifica quella crisi, le azioni intraprese dipendono dalle idee che circolano intorno. Questa, credo, è la nostra funzione fondamentale: sviluppare alternative alle politiche esistenti, mantenerle vive e disponibili fino a quando l'impossibile politicamente diventa politicamente inevitabile. - Milton Friedman, un economista americano che nel 1976 ricevette il premio Nobel in Scienze economiche. Only a crisis - actual or perceived - produces real change. When that crisis occurs, the actions that are taken depend on the ideas that are lying around. That, I believe, is our basic function: to develop alternatives to existing policies, to keep them alive and available until the politically impossible becomes the politically inevitable. ― Milton Friedman, an American economist who received the 1976 Nobel Memorial Prize in Economic Sciences.
