- "Once you strip away that feeling of invincibility, he can be had.” – Rocky Marciano."
...5 per cent in March. "It remains essential to counter an excessive fall in inflation in the eurozone" the Bank of Italy said

About 80% of that lost output will be restored in 2Q and 3Q. We estimate real GDP is on track to advance 1.5% with real consumer spending up 1.7% in 1Q. Overall growth metrics should snap back significantly in 2Q. If the economy improves bond yields will likely go up despite low inflation" (in other words real rates will rise)
