New Leadership in Italy While
entrepreneurs can be found anywhere, I take particular interest in what
the most populous countries are doing to comb their citizens for
entrepreneurs. Italy is the sixth most populous country in Europe, and
the twenty-third most populous in the world. It also has the world's
seventh-largest nominal GDP. Unfortunately, it also has the sixth
highest government budget and a large public deficit, such that the
economic confidence crisis in the Euro zone that sparked in Greece put a
spotlight on Italy´s economy, which faces similar insolvency risk. With
Italy´s public debt around 120 percent of GDP and growing, policy
options are increasingly constrained. Fortunately, spurring
entrepreneurship is not necessarily expensive (although it does take
political commitment) and is a proven source of economic energy.
