Covid, “Italians increasingly poorer”


Middle class under pressure for Covid. The number of the population that is part of it collapses, according to the data of the Ipsos-Flair 2021 study, presented at Cnel, from 40% of the pre-pandemic to 27%. The document also shows that: women are the true (and not recognized) Italian welfare system; fear and expectation are the two dominant feelings of the moment, followed by two other negative impulses such as disappointment and sadness. Anger boils in 13% of people, while serenity, dynamism and passion each animate 5% of public opinion. For Treu, the scenario outlined in the Ipsos report, ” forces us to run and make up for lost time. Millions of entrepreneurs and workers, especially women and young people, are waiting for answers that are slow in coming ”.

The prospects for social and personal recovery from the wounds of the pandemic, according to the president, ” are more complex than the processes of mere economic reconstruction and therefore require equally complex measures of protection and human promotion ”.

Tools will have to be put in place ” so that the epochal transition underway is actually just and not limited to innovating in the choices of the economy, but knowing how to help people to sustain the impact of economic and technological innovations and to benefit from them “, he concludes.
