Brussels says French and Italian budgets are OK... for now
Issued on: Modified:
Brussels gives France and Italy the green light on their budgets after both countries made revisions to their spending plans that included further belt-tightening. Meanwhile, markets anticipate the US Federal Reserve will end its quantitative easing (QE) programme. Finally, hobbits are here in France. A new movie inspired by The Hobbit shows off the lovely countryside of the Cantal department.
