Evans on Berlusconi on Mussolini
As I said, I will not discuss Berlusconi's recent comments on Mussolini because they were not mainly about economic matters. But there is a good piece about post-war attitudes to Fascism among the Italian right in the London Review of Books. So I will outsource this. It would, however, be interesting to come back to Mussolini's economic policy at some point. He is sometimes portrayed as the 'austerity fascist' as opposed to Hitler, the 'keynesian fascist'. But I wonder how good that argument really is. Some other time. Now busy with my manuscript.
