Italy E' fottuta!

Category: , By El Subliminal
Living with Europeans, one gets involved in the going-ons of different countries.
This time, it is Italy (thanks to my Italian roommate) by way of this farcical almost-theonion piece.   

The insider knowledge is that the Mafia are behind this, since they control the waste-management business (according to my room-mate, they control everything but thats for another day). 

Which begs the question - why doesn't trash affect the mafia as well? What does the mafia gain by letting trash pile on to the streets?  I'm sure there is a fancy economics paper on this..

As my room-mate would say - this is a G8 and a first-world nation.

    To clarify: Italy in 1992 made a great low: 7% of ENEL (Italian NSTAR) bills (taxes) had to go to the clean
    (renewable) energy production.

    Before presenting it after the approval, somebody added a word, adding it and assimilate which means assimilated. That word was enough to drive 48 BILIONS of EURO to few people. The most famous one is the Moratti family. (Cinzia was minister of education, sister or Luciano, president of Inter Milan soccer team) which is winning the premier league this year with great player. Where did he got the money? Other company got the money like
    API, ENEL itself, ENI.
    The CEO of ENI was sued and negotiated 2 years of jail for corruption. The guy was put in his manager position by Berlusconi.

    To cut it out, they are splitting the money opening incinerators.
    The waste emergency was planned by banks and spa not "by the mafia";
    The dumping industry increased their annual revenues of 100 times after this low, and we did not produce 100 times more waste.
    Another point is that, these industry have all legal offices in Reggio Emilia, Modena, Pavia so no southern people at all. So Naples is a victim probably.
    In general, italians who knows what they are, do not want incenerators.
    An american Professor Paul Connect explains why:

    So to recognize internationally that Italy is fucked up, as you say, dear VJ, is the first step.
