Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
"Europeans have been voting for more market oriented politicians of late,  Sarkozy in France, Merkel in Germany, Berti [sic] in Italy and soon, Cameron in the UK. The top corporate tax rate in Europe is lower in every EU country when compared to the US. And the US rate is going up. Europe is becoming less socialistic even as the US is becoming more so."

The perception of Berlusconi (Berti!?) as representing market values is utterly false. It is not even a matter of misleading. It is outright false. Berlusconi represents elite class interests: trusts, monopolies and corruption. Nothing else.
