Callegari: “For Messina Unjust rebalancing or failure?” – Tight time

The bad debt and the rebalancing plan that got the approval of the Commission. The reflection of Carlo Callegari

The debt of the municipality of Messina, like that of many other Italian municipalities, has the credentials to earn the title of bad debt. The economic category, popularized by President Draghi and more current than ever for the criteria for spending European loans, is suited to unproductive expenses, which, returning to budgets as a deficit, become debt that feeds debt.

Bad debt

They are unproductive expenses, because they consume wealth without creating structures and innovations necessary to improve the life of the community (can we cite useful works for the city obtained from debt?), While out of wicked irony they give profits, incomes and influence to parasitic classes without any other skills that the handling under the protective wing of complicit powers. And the politically relevant question is precisely the link between the debt-based economy and the backwardness of a corporate society, worthily represented in institutions by equally greedy and cynical associates. Those who in 2013 supported the candidacy for mayor of Accorinti had the only programmatic objective of the declaration of instability, as a formally administrative but substantially political act, because, if carried out, it would have shed light on the mechanisms and maneuvers of the city’s bankruptcy and could set the conditions to emerge from the rubble of our history, ideally reconnecting with the protagonists of the days of March 1947, whose deconsecrated normalization is celebrated every year with the subsequent history of the city, showing that they did not understand the spirit.

The unjust rebalancing

Thus, after the clumsy attempts of the Accorinti-Signorino junta, the skilled mayor De Luca, who must be recognized for the coherence and frankness of claiming his ideas with respect to the mystical deceptions of his charismatic predecessor, is about to announce that he has made mission of unjust rebalancing. An easy mission, because all the government majorities, affected by the sin of origin of the national public debt, facilitate its path with constitutionally illegitimate regulations, such as the one boasted by the Accorinti junta of “spreading” the debt like a cream in 30 years, rejected by Court of Auditors; unjust rebalancing, because it is burdened on the citizen, thus duped twice, first by the debt, then by the payment of the debt.

The impoverishment of Messina

In fact, having admitted the irrefutable impoverishment of the city, it is not clear from which secret fund the money to honor the debts was taken, if remedying a debt means paying it. Perhaps, instructed by the chapter dedicated to the debt of the book by Nina Lo Presti and Luigi Sturniolo “Acquitted for not having understood the fact”, it can be assumed that small creditors, faced with the dilemma of receiving part of the credit or nothing, have accepted, or rather succumbed to blackmail, and also that the big creditors have agreed to give up something in exchange for perpetual advantages. But beyond the hypotheses, verifiable by any willing reporter, the combination of the lack of services and the increase in tariffs remains to make us suspect that the big bill has been presented to the unsuspecting citizen. The singers of administrative success, if they do not want to remain confined to partisanship, should undertake to convince the skeptics of their satisfaction, in order to be able to honestly share it, but with rational arguments, such as those on which the spending criteria of the European Commission are based, to avoid that Member States finance unproductive projects, opening the chasm of bad debt.
