The offensive weapons of war economics are still traditionally the same: limiting the financial flows in the enemy country; the embargo; the manoeuvres on the public debt (to cause the fiscal crisis of the State or its insolvency). Today it is a matter of overturning these rules, so as to identify those that capitalize on the Covid-19 epidemics and stop their adverse actions.
We are back again to the usual routine of a too little too late approach in the EU, both for the Italian health spending and for the equally high one of the other countries affected by the epidemic. Creating debt to set the economy into motion again is of no use in the long run - if not as a stopgap measure. Direct interest-free financing from both the Bank of Italy and the ECB is needed
Italy's current deficit in relation to the needs resulting from the coronavirus epidemic is over 10 billion euros compared to current standard needs. In terms of its financial resources available for healthcare, Italy has 20% less than Great Britain, 34% less than France and 45% less than Germany
One of the primary goals of the Turkish Secret Service, the MIT, is penetration/control of the Kurdish PKK. Another target is Fethullah Gûlen’s organization, namely Hizmet. The MIT has had very sound relations with the CIA since the 1950s and has always had good relations with the intelligence agencies of Russia and Middle Eastern countries but has never had an effective and stable network of agents and collaborations with European intelligence services

Inevitably North Korea must be reassured of its permanence as a state, as well as of its controlled and, probably, partial denuclearisation, and of a complete and rapid integration into the world market
From now on, only Russia and Turkey will have real influence in the Libyan area between Tripoli and Benghazi and in the strategic neighboring countries. Turkish President Erdogan is currently the real hegemonic leader in the Tripoli system. The Turkish goal is, first of all, to preserve the key role of the Muslim Brotherhood in Tripoli, but it is obviously a project that mainly concerns the Turkish national hegemony
We need to carefully consider the cultural, symbolic and historical problems emerging in China with regard to the Uyghur issue. The new phase of Uyghur jihadism will affect the whole Middle East and the Maghreb region, in addition to an increasing share of jihadists of Turkish origin who will be operating in South-East Asia
The fund invests in healthy companies and quietly plays the role of minority shareholder. It also follows the private criteria of investment profitability and efficiency and does not follow the natural distortions to manipulate production formulas and intermediate markets
