Italian Democratic Leader Enrico Letta Full Interview

Former Prime Minister Enrico Letta says a right-wing coalition victory in Italy this month could trigger a return to the economic policies that contributed to a surge in the country's bond yields and helped fuel a sovereign debt crisis a decade ago. Heading into the election, Italians appear most concerned about rising inflation and the prospect of energy rationing this winter. Letta says that September 9 will be a turning point as EU nations meet in Brussels to discuss how to tackle the looming energy crisis in Europe. He spoke to Bloomberg TV at the Ambrosetti Forum in Cernobbio, Italy.
