(Markets Edition) In Italy, a group of populist, right-leaning parties had been preparing to put together a government, but that got derailed after Italy’s president vetoed their choice for finance minister — someone highly critical of the euro. We’ll look at what this means for Italian politics, the health of the European Union and the eurozone. Is this a harbinger for political conflict elsewhere in Europe?  Afterwards, we’ll explore how Amsterdam is trying to curb the disruptive effects of tourism. While the city only has a population of around 850,000 people, it gets about 18 million visitors each year. (05/28/2018)
