Just when it seemed safe not to worry about the next financial crisis, up pops Italy. “In Italy, lavish plans may propel next crisis,” warned the New York Times. Or, “Italy’s budget rattles financial markets on debt crisis fears,” said Sky News.
"Can Italy’s Debt Monster Be Controlled?" is from the October 17, 2018 Opinion section of The Washington Post. It was written by Robert J. Samuelson and narrated by Sam Scholl.
