Stuck at a Crossroads. Renzi's Stilnovo and Long-Term Policies

  • Abstract

Keywords: Policy Leadership; Policy Investments; Government for the Long Term; Structural Reforms.

The Renzi government seems to have adopted a novel «anticipatory-impositive» policy style. This note argues that such turn is indeed visible, but that its substantive goals are unclear: anticipatory of what? Why impositive, exactly? Italy is in desperate need of policy investments for the long term. What seems lacking in Renzi's leadership is a concrete future-oriented agenda. Despite some positive results, the lack of such an agenda continues to weaken the transformative potential of the government and its leader.
