GIAC: Italy sick man of Europe

Screen Shot 2014-02-19 at 00.31.46Girlfriend in a Coma on Facebook (Post by Girlfriend in a Coma – The Film.): “OVER THE centuries, many countries have taken their turn being labeled “the sick man of Europe.” If any place deserves the title today, it would be Italy.”


The Washington Post: Is Italy finally ready for radical reform?

My take: wrong – Italy is not today’s sick man of Europe. Italy is every day the sick man of Europe – and has been ever since the fall of the Roman Empire or, to be honest, since the fall of the Roman Republic. What’s surprising, is that sometimes it thrives on that.
