I'm surprised the situation in Italy is even worse than that in Spain and Greece, I thought it was the other way around.
I thought you would understand the general premise of the article. In that this is a global trend among Western countries, not exclusive to any particular country. I also would have thought you would have realized how short-sighted it is to take those unemployment numbers and use them for arguments, as the article outlines.

The PIIGS never compared favourably to Northern and Western European nations. Unless you want to go back hundreds of years.
