Carlo Cottarelli presents at UER his new book about “fake news” in economics

An exceptional guest, Prof. Carlo Cottarelli will be at Università Europea di Roma on Thursday, January 16th, 2020 at 18.00 to present his new book “Pachidermi e Pappagalli: tutte le bufale sull’economia che continuano a credere”.

Carlo Cottarelli worked in the Banca d’Italia (1981-1987) and Eni (1987-1988) research offices. Since 1988 he has been working for the International Monetary Fund (IMF).

In November 2013 he was appointed extraordinary commissioner for the public expenditure review and the following year he became Executive Director on the Board of the International Monetary Fund. Since 2017 he has been Director of the research centre Osservatorio sui Conti Pubblici Italiani of Università Cattolica di Milano.

Prof. Cottarelli will help us to understand the economy of our country and the world economy, learning to distinguish the truth from the exaggerations that are artfully created by the relentless propaganda on social media and, increasingly, on traditional media.

The meeting will be introduced by Prof. Gambino, who will welcome both the guest speaker and the participants on behalf of the university, and it will be moderated by Prof. Giovanni Farese.

Our students, former students, alumni and the audience will have the possibility to ask the Director of Osservatorio sui Conti Pubblici Italiani questions and clarifications on nowadays “Misinformation Techniques”.

An aperitif will also be offered.
