His poems have an appealing style, written with a deliberate simplicity: it is said that he would rewrite any part of a poem if one of his servants was unable to understand it. His poems were...

Economic Fascism: Primary Sources on Mussolini's Crony Capitalism

Carlo Celli

Economic Fascism: Primary Sources on Mussolini's Crony Capitalism by Carlo CelliIt may be argued that Mussolini (1883-1945, dictator of Italy 1922-1943) invented modern crony capitalism. Although he described himself as a socialist, he rejected the Marxist version. Today nobody supports what came to be called fascism, but nevertheless many of the economic policies central to it survive and even dominate in countries all over the world. This unique collection of Mussolini's statements about economics is important, all the more so since many of them have not been previously available in English.
