Italy stays a rustic the place all the things is difficult: paperwork, they do not need music, they depend on you. It’s firms that create demand, not decrees, political lobbies. Principally, Italy is a communist nation and is unfriendly to entrepreneurs. They’re seen as exploiters.”

However on the entrepreneurial stage, there’s a large stage of tax evasion. Maybe if everybody paid taxes, the notion can be totally different.

“I agree. For this you want a flat tax of 25-28%, no more than 50%. I’m for very extreme penalties for tax evaders, in different international locations there’s a firm arrest if you don’t pay tax, however fairer charges are wanted. Twelve years there was a witch hunt towards me, after which I used to be acquitted of all the things. However the tax workplace nonetheless asks me for cash. They took my boat and bought it, somebody can pay for it. All this rage as a result of I identify is Flavio Briatore.
