More than 11 million people live in bidonvilles in Brazil, according to IBGE.

This is what Berlusconi was writing today in parliament when he realised he doesn’t have the majority anymore. I am wondering what he is going to do with the “8 betrayers”.

After long three months of huge international pressure on Italy, it seems that Berlusconi is going to resign. On Monday, a journalist close to Berlusconi, Giuliano Ferrara, said the Italian Premier would step down, and the stock market soared. It seems that he ran out of options. The economy beats Berlusconi.
