This is pathetic

Every wonder what a stagnant economy and longstanding institutional problems have done to Italy?
The Italian government is now giving young men cash to fly the nest.
I blame the welfare state, endless corruption and the lack of a rational tax system. This targeted tax cut is not going to improve matters but Aaron Hanscom offers a suggestion.
An idea for Italy: pass a law prohibiting mothers from doing their sons’ laundry. Although even that might not work. According to the Telegraph, “Many other Italians happily send their laundry home to their mothers, and 43 percent, when they do finally move out, rent or buy homes less than a mile from their parents.”
