Italy's Berlusconi: ignore the 'crazy' markets
The Associated Press
The conservative leader said Tuesday that Italians should ignore the `'crazy" markets. His center-left rivals won Parliament's lower house after votes were counted Monday. But they failed to win an absolute majority in the upper house.
Pro-Europe leaders, who were hoping Italy would stay the course of tough economic reforms, are rattled by the prospects of legislative gridlock. Berlusconi says having another election soon won't solve problems, and called on fellow leaders to `'make some sacrifices," an apparent call for a coalition government.
