Italy's Head Man Renzi Seeks to Reform Italy and Pays U.S. President Obama Economic Compliments

If we pay attention carefully to Italy's new 39-year-old head of state,
many people in America may be judging U.S. President Barack Obama wrongly.

We have just been reading Roger Cohen's perspicacious article in the New York Times Sunday Review at Trying to Reinvent Italy.

Cohen writes (excerpted statements):
[as regards America] "I asked Renzi why the [new Italian economic] legislation has an English name. “Because I like what Obama did,” he said. “The most interesting things he’s done have been on the domestic front. He took an economy in crisis in 2009, intervened, relaunched growth, and created jobs, all things that Europe has not succeeded in doing.” ...
[as regards Britain and France]  "[Renzi is] the only new game in town, with Britain caught in a debilitating debate over a possible exit from the European Union and France turning in circles under weak leadership." ...
[as regards Germany] “Here a lot of people have accused Merkel of being the guilty one in the crisis,” Renzi said. “But the fault is not hers. It’s ours. We got ourselves into this. If we had done labor reform 10 years ago, when Germany did it, we would have been a lot better off.” 

[as regards Italy] ... “First I must put my own country in order,” Renzi acknowledged. “Otherwise I will never be credible.”
Check out the article to get a different look of the world than you may be used to. Read Trying to Reinvent Italy.
