Mario Monti was born in Varese on 19 March 1943. His father hailed from Varese (though he spent much of his life in Argentina after emigrating during World War II), and his mother was born in Piacenza. Mario Monti holds a degree in economics and management from Bocconi University, Milan. He completed graduate studies at Yale University, where he studied under James Tobin, the Nobel prize-winning economist.
He taught economics at the University of Turin from 1970 to 1985 before moving to Bocconi University, where he was its Rector from 1999 to 2001, and has been its President since 1994. He was also the President of SUERF (The European Money and Finance Forum) from 1982 to 1985. His research has helped to create the 'Klein-Monti model', aimed at describing the behaviour of banks operating under monopoly circumstances.
Monti is a member of the Presiderium of the Friends of Europe, a leading European think tank, and was the first chairman of Bruegel, a European think tank founded in 2005. He is the European Chairman of the Trilateral Commission, a think tank founded in 1973 by David Rockefeller. He is also a leading member of the exclusive Bilderberg Group.
Monti has been an international advisor to Goldman Sachs and The Coca-Cola Company.
Nota de tripalio: com este curriculo, os italianos estão bem lixados. Para já vai aumentar impostos e aumentar idade da reforma. Um bilderberg deividamente apoiado pela Europa e pela trupe de comentadores salivantes
