Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
Isn't Italy included in the PIIGS?

Yes.  But notice that the focus has been on Portugal and Spain.  That's all the more confusing when you look at the debt ratings.

Italy's two steps below Spain, yet you don't here nearly as much hand wringing about that country.  Why?
