Berlusconi is Back, and So Is the Eurozone Debt Crisis

Yields on Spanish and Italian debt are trading more than 1% lower than at their peak, while world stock markets have soared close to all-time highs.
Unfortunately, you can expect that all of this euphoria will fade when the Italian elections take place on February 23 and 24.
The reason is summed up in two words: Silvio Berlusconi.
