ROME — For someone not running for political office, Premier Mario Monti has an awfully detailed plan for how to fix Italy's financial woes and bring the country and the rest of Europe back to economic health.

Monti issued a 25-page agenda to "Change Italy, Reform Europe" late Sunday after announcing he had ruled out campaigning for February elections, but would consider leading the next government if politicians who share his focus on reform request it.

Monti outlined the steps Italy must take to finish the reforms his 13-month technical government launched to reign in Italy's public debt, spur economic growth and bring Europe's No. 3 economy out of recession.

Some of his priorities include attracting greater foreign investment, investing in research, exploiting Italy's cultural treasures and fighting tax evasion and corruption.
