The Italian Economy: Day 9

Today was midterm day. One thing we talked about before the test was the ridiculous cost of doing business within Italy due to the Italian bureaucracy - even by bureaucratic standards, they are woefully inefficient.

So it was very timely to read this article in The Economist about changes in the supply of electricity for Italian citizens. The last paragraph is very telling.
