Quite prescient, really. Luigi Zingales, a professor at the University of Chicago Booth School of business, saw a striking parallel between Donald Trump and Silvio Berlusconi, who was prime minister of Italy for nine years between 1994 to 2011. Now that the inconceivable has happened, Mr. Zingales offered lessons from the Berlusconi debacle.
Regarding the massive protests happening across the country:
“These protests are also counterproductive. There will be plenty of reasons to complain during the Trump presidency, when really awful decisions are made. Why complain now, when no decision has been made? It delegitimizes the future protests and exposes the bias of the opposition.”
There are sound ideas here and Democrats should pay attention.
