In a political and Unions panorama where everyone seems to have certainties in their bag, Paolo Capone’s book has the great merit of generating doubts in readers mind.
The doubts of the Secretary General of the U.G.L. are relentless. In this volume he reviews not only all the latest interventions in the field of labour rights, but he also goes on to analyse the context that poses essential questions about the economic system in which we live. Starting from the relationship between daily life and the great phenomena of globalization, passing through the detailed analysis of the most evident sufferings of our Country in the area of infrastructures, banks, social and institutional relations, what emerges finally rejects any ideological temptation to reduce the world to a slogan, or worse, to a dogma, but on the contrary restores to our productive fabric its dignity as a complex organism, built on the value of the people and certainly not on the cold parameters of Brussels.
The main and implicit question that animates the pages you are about to read is always the same: “Why? For What Reason?
In itself, it is enough representative to speak of a new approach compared to the studies we are used to, generally so focused on the past, on the historical causes of this or that measure, that we end up losing sight of the most important evaluation criterion: the one that looks to the future. Capone does, of course, look for the causes, but above all he connects them and proposes a solution to each issue.
He dares to look beyond the headlines, going beyond appearances.
He is not satisfied with a partial point of view, even though the full force of a Trade Union that has always been far removed from the traditional logic of class conflict rightly emerges.
A Trade Union proudly “Different” and for this reason particularly precious.
