Today we are celebrating the 40th anniversary of the establishment of the European Court of Auditors. These have been 40 years of commitment to the European idea, 40 years of service to our citizens and of service to our values. Our common values are founded in our commitment to democracy. Democracy requires us to be accountable towards EU citizens, who remind us every day that we must spend our money wisely and correctly.

Press Release - Brussels - 12-10-2017

Voglio iniziare questa lectio con una nota citazione di Luigi Einaudi: “Milioni di individui lavorano, producono e risparmiano nonostante tutto quello che noi possiamo inventare per molestarli, incepparli, scoraggiarli. E’ la vocazione naturale che li spinge; non soltanto la sete di guadagno. Il gusto, l’orgoglio di vedere la propria azienda prosperare, acquistare credito, (...) sono una molla di progresso altrettanto potente che il guadagno”. (Read more)
