 The Italian Senate has approved a $68 billion austerity budget. The four-year package aims to balance the budget by 2014. It passed by 161 votes to 135. The package now moves to the Lower House where it’s expected to be approved tomorrow. Italy is the eurozone’s third largest economy and it has one of the biggest debts at 120 per cent of GDP. Markets fear it could go the same way as Greece, Portugal and Ireland unless there are immediately(口误,应为immediate) spending cuts and tax rises.
