The recent election in Italy has sent shockwaves through Europe. The election’s big winner was the anti-establishment Five Star Movement which had ridden a wave of popular discontent linked to economic malaise and concerns over immigration. Markets were nervous and so too the EU as Italy made threats to leave.
