Save Italy
Contest Directions: Just when it seemed the euro debt troubles were the worst they could possibly get, today Italy shocked the world financial markets more than Greece did in the past weeks. The situation with the Italian debt turned out so bad that Italian 10-year bond yields shot above the 7 percent level that is widely deemed unsustainable, reflecting investors' concerns that they may not get their money back and prompting German Chancellor Angela Merkel to issue a call to arms. Italian borrowing costs reached breaking point on Wednesday after Prime Minister Silvio Berlusconi's insistence on elections instead of an interim government opened the way to prolonged instability and delays to economic reform. This comes a day after Berlusconi failed to get a majority in Italian parliament.
Help save Italy from financial default by showing creative ways for Italy to raise money for repaying their debts, or show some methods for spending cuts in Italy.
