  • Real Estate Market Seems to be Back in Rude Health

    Real Estate Market Seems to be Back in Rude Health

In fact the problem goes way back: Italy was a founding member of the EU in 1952, so there has been 60 years for the Brussels gravy train to infect and undermine economic sanity in all branches of the Italian state, not just in the mezzogiorno (the south). Then there's the mafia, under its various names, and we all know how they react to any attempt to take away their patrimony. So, fingers crossed, and good luck to Mr Monti, who knows what to do.
