Blog Comment on Italy

This was recently posted by a reader:

I’m from Italy so I can answer your question. The general and most accepted ideas in Italy are:

  • “The problem is president Berlusconi.”
  • “We need structural reforms!” (In every pub people love to say that, to feel themselves intelligent, the same that are in precarious financial conditions.)
  • “We are not credible.”
  • “We live beyond our means.”

And the best:

  • “Without the Euro it would be a catastrophe, fortunately, we have a strong currency.”
